I believe I can I do anything, and am more than willing to try. 

I am enrolled in IDP and preparing for LEED AP and ARE exams.

I am looking forward further expanding the capabilities of the next studio by advancing with new projects both locally and regional. My greatest asset is my experience with design programs and understanding of structural design in the built environment and architectural spaces. Being well traveled I am comfortable working in complex international environments. I am able to use my experiences with confidence applied towards team efforts as well as maintaining independent task. I enjoy overcoming challenges, whether they are physical or technical.

My other passions in life include physical sports, racing and the arts. I have been traveling for as long as I can remember, most recently finishing a month in Europe after working in Thailand for three years.

I want to work with others that enjoy working,

In 2011 I started a non profit, Better River Communities, I would be more than happy to work with others to make never ending project a reality.
