A recent undergraduate of the University of Virginia School of Architecture and a native Coloradan, my education in the forests of the East Coast and my roots in the Rocky Mountains have attuned me to the significance of place-making. I believe that architecture is fundamentally rooted in our connections to each other and to where we live. Thus it has the responsibility of being a steward for these connections through sensitive, innovative,and uplifting design.
