About 

I grew up as a student of music and art on the gulf coast of FL. In my childhood, the two things I loved the most were Legos, and science fiction. I spent my time making environments and scenarios, or inventing the characters which filled them; in each case, I was fascinated with the stories both of these mediums told. In my formative years, I leaned toward the depth and holisticity of making a place versus making a person or persons. My early interest in art, images and design led me to graduate with a Master of Architecture from the School of Architecture and Community Design at the University of South Florida.

During the course of my graduate education, my design philosophy developed around a user-based aesthetic, in which design decisions are divergent, and exist to enhance, ameliorate, and influence a user’s interaction with images, products, and space. Major influences include architects Tadao Ando and Lebbeus Woods, and industrial designer Donald Norman, for his work on the psychology of design. While I have grown immensely throughout my life and education, I feel like I haven't changed; I still love to watch sci-fi shows like Fringe and Doctor Who in my free time, and I play with Legos whenever they're in front of me.
