I'm passionate about architectural design and theory.  I'm trying to do my part to keep the art of architecture lively, collaborative, reflective, and transcendent.  To improve my ability to influence the profession, and keep it closely align with art, I'm working toward extending my education with a terminal degree. 

My favorite part of architecture is collaborating with designers. I love to feed off the creativity and energy of others in order to push my creative boundaries.  I love bouncing ideas back and forth.

I'm proficient in Revit, Photoshop, AutoCAD, Office, and Sketchup.  I have a lot of experience in 3ds Max and InDesign.  I have some experience with Illustrator.

Over the years I've volunteered in several children's programs for my local church.  Currently, I'm volunteering by leading a men's group for an addictions program.

Here are some animations I did in 3ds Max
