While I was completing my thesis on Surrealist Architecture for my B.A. in Art History from Washington and Lee University, I knew that I would be most satisfied with a career that allowed me to synthesize different disciplines.  Completing my Master’s of Architecture has allowed me to pursue my love of history, theory, the weird, the colorful, and the creative.  PennDesign has challenged me to think about questions of representation and digital media.  

As I’ve continued to develop my own aesthetic, the flat colors on earlier projects have developed into real materials and textures in my two most recent projects.  The terrazzo in the “Havana Vernacular” project and the model embellishment in “Diabolik” are two instances where these ideas become reality.  

This portfolio illustrates the skills I have honed while studying, and I am excited to continue developing these tenants of my designs outside of an academic setting. I am currently serving as an Adjuct Lecturer for a third year Master’s degree studio at PennDesign with Inaki Echeverria.
