Architecture is a very curious topic that goes far beyond its literal meaning of the built space. Within the facets of architecture, many things are revealed - culture, history, social movements, feelings, beliefs. Architecture represents not just the builder but those who interact with it. Every architect is bound to a social contract to create meaningful structures that serve the whole community - through function, ascetic, or more. 

This is what inspires me; The influence that architects may have for improvement and problem solving. My background from DAAP - University of Cincinnati’s design and architecture school contributed to my ultimate desire to strive for change and betterment of the built space. My Masters degree from Newschool of Architecture - focus in construction management reveals the reality of these goals. Together I would like to use my education and skills to work towards social justice through design. 

My job at Nelson Worldwide helps me reimagine the built space that shoppers engage with. Offering dynamic new store experiences and implementing that design across a number of stores.
