I grew up just south of downtown San Antonio, in an old house with lots of character.  From a young age, I helped my dad improve our home.  It began with little projects, replacing a screen, painting a door, and then grew into adding on a bedroom.  This helped to foster a keen interest in how materials work together to create space. 

I received a Masters of Architecture from the University of Arizona, and am working towards embodying my ideals of healthy collaboration, sustainability, and a clear sense of purpose knowing that good design can effect positive change.
