I am a designer with multi-disciplinary experience who lives, works, and plays within two miles of the White House in Washington, DC. I currently coordinate exhibitions for the District Architecture Center and design exhibitions independently with the National Building Museum, two organizations that advocate for the built environment through educational programming and exhibitions.
Originally trained in architecture, I worked on multiple project types throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, including master plans, schools, institutional facilities, restaurants, retail, and single-family houses.
By merging my experience in architecture and exhibition design, I now consider myself an advocate for the built environment, inspiring people to explore the world we create for ourselves through storytelling and spatial experiences. I’m captivated by buildings, sites, and the spaces we encounter, curiously engaged by the world man creates, and I believe that architecture matters — that it deserves both critical analysis and spirited celebration.
Beyond professional work, I draw, paint, and photograph using the built environment as inspiration. I also explore art galleries and major museums, love to travel, and enjoy biking, hiking, running, and walking.
I received a Master of Arts in Exhibition Design from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2011 and a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Kentucky, College of Design in 2003.
