About 

I earned a master’s degree in Architecture from Tulane School of Architecture and I am a licensed Architect in the State of Louisiana. I am committed to continuing to advance my professional career to design a more resilient environment for the future, embracing new technologies at tools to facilitate advancement design and construction.

At Waggonner and Ball Architects I have been a part of numerous Revit based projects of large and small scales with a wide range of program types including new construction, adaptive reuse and historic renovation. I helped managing the prototype school design and CA of the Ray Abrams and Ernest “Dutch” Morial Schools for the Recovery School District. I was worked to on the design and CA of the Isidore Newman School Manning Family Athletic Complex, a new facility with improvements including an addition to the existing bleachers, a new concessions area, rest room facilities, a new playing field, and a halftime and rally plaza. The project was completed on a very tight design and construction schedule, in time for football season in fall 2016. While at WBAE, I have worked to advance the Revit implementation on numbers project teams developing office work flow as consultant coordination procedures. A key design driver on all of the projects that I have worked on at WBAE is the philosophy of the building and site as a tool to teach and engage with public with a focus on water management, a critical issue locally and worldwide. Currently, I am managing the new Louisiana Children’s Museum project for our office, which is under construction at City Park. Other projects that I have been involved with at WBAE include the Ohio Creek Watershed Pump Stations currently in design Norfolk VA, the Greater New Orleans Foundation Center for Philanthropy, the Savannah Courthouse Annex design competition, the KIPP Believe School in Gentilly and the renovation to the Sophie B. Wright School.
