About 

   I am from Denver Colorado.  I received a Masters at Andrews University.  At Andrews he studied traditional architecture and New Urbanism.  After traveling abroad I absorbed the traditional ways of building and urbanism.  This cemented my resolve in creating meaningful places.  In 2009, I participated in a Charrette in the Bahamas.  My class won the CNU award for their project on Great Abaco island.

    In the summer of 2012 I did an internship in Parma Italy at Pier Carlo Architects.  Here I learned how important the buildings are to their surroundings.  How architecture and urbanism influence and play a very important role to the lifestyle one has.  

  After moving to Asia, I was introduced to different styles of architecture and business.  Here I worked on a variety of projects ranging from high rise apartments, retirement villages, resorts and urban development.  

    I am enthusiastic about continuing the development of his passion for residential and urban design at Moser Design Group.
