With a Bachelor's of Arts in Architecture and a Masters in Landscape Architecture, my passion for design is noticeable. I am enthusiastic about enhancing people’s outdoor experiences, passionate about creating meaningful designed places and knowledgeable in nature sustainability and integrated design processes.  This experience is what drives me to seek a multidisciplinary environment to grow and thrive.

I am comfortable working as part of a team but also have the ability to work independently when the situation arises.

Parks for the People Competition, 1st Place

Parks for the People is a design competition that reimagines America's most spectacular public places — its national parks — by using design as a catalyst to creatively rethink their connections to people and their role as revered natural, social, and cultural destinations. As the U.S. National Park Service embarks upon a new century of park design, Parks for the People has called on faculty and student teams across the nation to reimagine seven park sites in each geographic region of the U.S. In the spring of 2012, the nine Stage 1-winning teams are working to envision innovative ideas for the design and planning of the 21st-century national park. This summer and fall, we'll select the winners and celebrate their visions for welcoming, meaningful, healthy, and enduring public places — parks that are truly for the people.
