2013 SCI-Arc, Southern California Institute of Architecture, graduate with a Professional Bachelors of Architecture degree 2013. I am currently looking for full time work in an Architecture office and creative freelance work.

The past year prior to Thesis I was participating in Solar Decathlon 2013 as the Architectural Project Manager working through various schematic designs and technologies that are directly influencing the project. Ultimately designing a skin shade structure and building a full scale mock-up of the system.

Using a simple pragmatic approach that develops a project based on a core conceptual design principle enables consistency in every detail and creates a comprehensive cohesive intelligent solution to every project.

Taking great pride in the production quality of all drawings, models and work (not to say they are sacred or precious) ensures they are resolved to an extent and exhibit a level of legibility that results in greater understanding of the project.
