Since sketching at the age of 5, I have always wanted to affect our daily experiences in our environments. My career goal is leading an architectural practice in a design process and corporate branding that augments our clients’ experience of their work.

Architecture must create opportunities to draw people to a place, compel immersion in experience and enhance functionality. The design process must thoughtfully shape the experience and lifestyle in built environment; architects must prioritize this from first ideation to last paint coat.

I always work by concept and intent; knowing the “why” of the “what” directs my initiative in meeting project needs.

My workflow synthesizes hand sketching, 3-D modeling/rendering and graphic software and each medium speaks differently in problem-solving.

Hand sketching is my first start as it is the most straightforward exploration of thought, free from the ‘rules’ of other media. As my ideas take form, I structure the concept through the ‘rules’ of each medium. I integrate Revit/BIM as early as possible to bring parametric intelligence to developing and evaluating scope of concept.
