Pasadena, CA, US



     I bring with me eight-years of experience, ranging from small residential additions to multi-million dollar tenant improvements and university-campus master plans. I am incredibly adept at learning on-the-fly, capable of adapting to suit individual project requirements. I possess an in-depth understanding of building and accessibility codes, and also possess knowledge in green building, represented by my individual certification as a LEED Green Associate. I obtain extensive experience in researching and implementing zoning requirements, as well as intimate knowledge of what is required in the process of acquiring city approvals. I spent the last year performing intensive research pertaining to Haiti in collaboration with Thom Mayne as part of the NOW Institute's "Haiti Now" initiative.

     I reject any notion which asserts the validity of a singular, absolute, and intractable idea being the progenitor of architectural brilliance, rather that architectural success is embodied by the process of design, a transitory endeavor rather than a static one.
