About 

I am a 22 year old recent graduate from the undergraduate architecture program at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. My time here has been spent investigating architecture and theory with specific interests in digital fabrication and humanist architecture. I believe people should be at the center of the architectural world. Ultimately, everything we do will be for current and future people to interact with, we should design with them in mind. My architectural work has been a critique of contemporary society. I do not think that being ruled by greed and wealth is valuable and that consumed objects define us as people. An ideal architecture to me aims to provide everything people need to live in a humble, sustainable and thoughtful way.
