About 

I am pursuing a MArch degree from the University of Kansas. I spent my first four years studying in Kansas, but I decided to spend my final two years abroad. I have studied language and architecture in Vienna, Austria; Stuttgart, Germany and I currently live and work in Paris, France. I enjoy travel and am currently seeking international work. I am working toward a degree in architecture, however, I am interested in all forms of design.

Employment 

Vasconi Associés Architectes, Paris, FR, Designer

I worked in a team on multiple international competitions. I was responsible for reading briefs, creating and developing concepts, spatial planning, 3D modeling with Rhino and rendering with VRay, image production and manipulation with Photoshop and presentation board layout with InDesign. Our teams often included outside consultants and partner firms such as ARUP, Bollinger+Grohmann and HL-Technik. I would often act as a liaison between our firms, meeting and working directly with their teams, often communicating across different time zones.

In addition to competition work, I was involved with developing ideas with clients for feasibility studies.

Vasconi Associés Architectes, Paris, FR, Stagiaire

I worked with our office's Hong Kong team along with MET Studio on the interior design for the world's largest sludge treatment facility in Hong Kong.

I was a part of the design team for our second prize entry for the EXPO 2017 competition in Astana, Kazakhstan. We worked with consultants and I spent most of my time focusing on the "Symbol of Astana" with the structural team from ARUP. We developed a sculptural tower and tent that would act as a focal point for the project.
