About 

I recently finished the M.Arch program at the University of Florida.  My Masters Research Project is on Disaster Relief Shelters and designing a modular system that could accommodate a responsive architecture and provide a path to permanent homes through a flexible system.  Since graduation I've worked with my advisors to get the project and research published in the ASCE Journal (American Society of Civil Engineers).  I've also used the time to refine the design and ready it for production once funds are acquired.

Engineering Ministries International, Colorado Springs, CO, US, Architectural Intern

I was an Architectural Intern. I helped the staff architects document and develop current and past projects, through AutoCAD and Revit. The project trip I was on was ELWA Hospital in Monrovia Liberia for Samaritan's Purse. The design was a 140 bed hospital with multiple wards and surgical theaters to upgrade the war ravaged hospital currently on the site.
