As a recent graduate of my Master’s of Architecture degree, and previously attaining my Bachelor of Science in Design studying interior design, I have a curiosity about the world and the way in which people inhabit it through the built environment. These two degrees have allowed me to understand design concepts at a multitude of scales. While I love to explore all of these scales, I am very much driven by the human scale and see this as a way for the inhabitant to connect with a building whether on the interior, through thresholds, or from the larger surrounding context.
While studying, I have made a point to travel the world in search of exploring the variety of ways people live in different cultures. I have traveled throughout the US, Western Europe, Japan and China. These travels also include a semester of study in London as well as a bi-national course in Tokyo working with students at the Tokyo University of Science. These cultural experiences have influenced my thought and curiosity about both urban and rural environments, which continues to guide my work.
My experience includes assistant teaching numerous courses including leading two second year architecture studios, freelance residential projects, and work as an interior design intern. My work ethic is derived from my Midwestern roots, but I am enthusiastic to learn from the world and apply my collegiate knowledge and experience working and traveling to real-world architectural projects.
