About 

Mantra:  Embrace architecture and urban design to create places in harmony with nature and which elevate human experience.  

I am looking to collaborate with people who seek to innovate equitable, environmentally sensitive and culturally appropriate places worthy of the people who will occupy them.  

I am trained as an artist, architect, and urban planner. I am on the path to obtaining architectural license, and toward AICP planning certification as well.   I am a LEED Green Associate.  CPHC + LEED AP certifications forthcoming.

In my spare time I play drums, guitar, and ride bicycles.  All work and no play, well...
