I am an architect, artist, and designer currently situated in the quaint town of Shanghai, China.
I am passionate about craft, innovation, and socially conscious design. I do not settle for mediocrity and believe firmly that through a willingness to experiment, beauty and inventiveness can be achieved with even the smallest budget or the most difficult constraints. I promote the idea that sustainability and connection to the site and landscape shouldn’t be a separate path or point of discussion during the design process; they should be integral to every aspect of the design from a project’s conception. I desire to work in an environment where I will be continually challenged, developing my skills as an architect while contributing to the growth and evolution of the design profession.
