Architecture, urbanism and environment are my passions, I strive for tactile results and thrive in either a collaborative or solo atmosphere. A nuanced understanding of the urban condition today and historically is vital and always informs my approach to problem solving. Each city is different, but many good cities share the same underlying principles. How can we maintain the character and individuality of cities (and thus structures) while simultaneously bringing them into the 21st century? I believe the answers are rooted in sustainability and community. Within those two realms are a wealth of resources that can help us as designers to create not just best practice, but innovative practice.
**I am currently logging my IDP hours and actively working towards becoming a licensed architect.**
