Creativity is a powerful characteristic, a stimulating ability evolving from our own originalities
and perspectives. Creativity gives me the ability to fuse the surreal to reality, generating my
own unique designs. This self expression helps define me as a unique individual.
Having a fascination for how things are interlocked has furthered my outlook on life. This
ranges from a personal computer to the way a building is constructed. Being focused with
every detail as I design is one way I illustrate my ideas successfully. A fascination with the
details on how things are put together has followed me throughout my life.
It is a passion for detailed architecture that has kept my ambitions soaring. Attending three
universities has given me various perspectives that demonstrate an appreciation for the
built environment. Vincennes University provided me with the ground work for construction
documents. Southern Illinois University provided myself with the ability to layer more
knowledge of construction details and artwork. After my undergraduate work, I decided
to attend Savannah College of Art and Design where I have received a balance of creativity
and technical drawings. Architecture is a compelling and dominant force that has given me
a sense of direction. It is my personal belief that architecture helps lay the groundwork for
success and accomplishment in the future.
