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, consequently creating a tangible catalyst for the ultimate curing of this tragically preventable disease. The philosophy is a simple plan implemented through education, rehabilitation, and the art of place making.
I am specifically interested in Urban & Campus Planning, Science & Technology, K-12 Educational Facilites & Sustainable Design. As well as having a passionate interest in humanitarian, ecologically sensitive design while specializing in innovative architectural research & experimentation.
