Having originated in Ohio, I've embarked on an exciting journey that has lead me to New York City where I now reside. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture from Kent State University. I am now on the road less traveled to achieve my architectural license through alternative education, driven by a dream to design and construct the vision of the future.

Beyond the drafting board, I am an adventurous traveler, finding inspiration in nature’s beauty. Hiking, camping, and exploring the world’s architectural wonders ignite my creativity. Connect with me to learn more.
