I see architecture as an opportunity to create environments which embrace healthy ecologies. It is my belief that fresh architecture is responsive to its environment; it makes every necessary attempt to not only blend with culture but create it by enhancing the context in which it is established. With this in mind, I seek opportunities to develop socially responsible building programs both in the United States, and abroad.


In my professional experience I've noticed the destructive capabilities of ego and I take no interest in aggressively asserting my ideas on others. I find the most pleasure in this field when team members work together to address common needs and discover interests in order to offer ways in which goals can be accomplished together. I actively pursue opportunities in which I can work productively with team members to meet project deadlines while maintaining an environment that is surrounded by laughter and excitement.
