Designing doesn't stop with my love for architecture but extends to every facet of my life.  I enjoy messing around with sleek graphics, tweaking products to my lifestyle, and highlighting the built environment through photography.

My formal education comes from the Savannah College of Art and Design completing a M.ARCH and B.F.A with concentration in Architecture.  While I was at SCAD, my time was spent playing baseball, working as an architectural office assistant, and soaking up the Savannah aroma.
