About 

Since age six, elevations have been engrained into my artistic vocabulary, cultivating a rich architectonic wisdom. Now twenty-some years of age, Frank Lloyds Wright's idea of a perfect plan has challenged me to think in four dimensions, never compromising place, materiality and architecture as relief, experiential and breathtaking.

Completing my thesis in collaboration with The Mossy Foot Project was a huge personal accomplishment for me. In my book I address the geochemical disease known as Podoconiosis. Fueled by the sole intention of soul healing through a multi-faceted phasing plan I pushed to pioneer architecturally distinct structures, outlining a tangible catalyst for the curing of this tragically preventable disease. The philosophy is a simple plan implemented through education, rehabilitation, and the art of place making.

I am experienced in Custom Residential, Light Commercial & Multi-Family. Furthermore, I am specifically interested in Urban & Campus Planning, Science & Technology, K-12 Educational Facilities & Sustainable Design. As well as having a passionate interest in humanitarian, ecologically sensitive design while specializing in innovative architectural research & experimentation.

We're on the hunt for designers of all stripes and statuses to share their visions of how design can reshape, reform and regenerate places and communities when disaster strikes.

I was one of seven lucky presenters will be chosen by representatives of Dwell and Architecture for Humanity.
