Chicago, IL, US



I received my Master of Architecture from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012 and my Bachelor of Arts in Art History from The College of William & Mary in 2009. As a prospective architect, I am interested in the juxtaposition of art and architecture. My work is often inspired by artistic movements such as Minimalism and Abstract Expressionism in conjunction with the necessity for practicality in design.

As a young designer, emerging technologies play a key role in the development of my designs. Autodesk's Revit Architecture software is my primary medium. Accordingly, I am interested in the paradigm-changing development of Building Information Modeling.
