About 

I am a designer with a Bachelor's of Architecture.

My life began during a blizzard in Burlington, Vermont. The East Coast still holds a large piece of my heart. 

At a young age, my family and I moved to Asunción, Paraguay. I did most of my growing up there and speak fluent spanish. South America is an intriguing and complex environment in which I hope my life leads me back to someday. 

My artistic abilities were shifted toward architectural design after moving to a small Central Valley town in California, filled with cookie-cutter shopping centers and track homes.

Since then I have traveled twice to China; once during the Beijing Olympics, as an onlooker, and once for a school project, as a participant. 

My experiences have finessed my interests which now focus on sustainable design in small or large urban areas. City development is a fascinating subject that I believe can be revolutionized through smart design and architectural thinking.
