   I am the architect of my moment. I design, share, learn and experience all that I can to inspire the world that I imagine. I am a creative mind that is eager to explore ideas and innovate with others like me. Whether those ideas become reality through architecture, critique, design, writing, or art, I believe that sharing them is imperative to growth.  

   Coming from a small town in Northern California, I aspire to explore the world and its vast opportunities to grow, learn and be my unique self. I dream of sharing my experience and ideas with others to ignite their curiosity, while they simultaneously do the same for me. 

   Since a young age I dreamed of becoming an architect. I believe that the most valuable thing in life is experiencing ideas of your own and of others, then sharing those learnings and lessons with others. Whether you attain them from personal experience, digging deep through history and the physical representations of the past, or listening to another's imagination, they all hold a valuable meaning. The first step for me to reach my career goal is to learn and gain experience within a design firm and work my way to becoming a licensed architect.  

    My work experience has ranged through a small Northern California firm specializing in civic/community, commercial, education, transportation, healthcare, and institutional facilities; to a large educational based firm in Southern California; to a large residential interior design company. Through my experiences I have learned how to integrate myself into large teams, and also taking on many challenges and jobs in small teams.  

    Feel free to reach out to me at my contacts anytime. I am excited to share a laugh, a story, or an idea that you are eager to come alive.
