I’m an Architectural Designer currently living in Denver, Colorado.

I attended North Carolina State University and graduated with two Bachelors degrees (B.Architecture + B. Environmental Design) while minoring in Environmental Science. Intrigued by new challenges and experiences, I moved from North Carolina to Colorado in hopes to meet new people and live in a new part of the country I hadn't yet explored.

I have a lifelong passion for bringing a project to life through a hands-on creative process. With a strong sense of ethical responsibility, I aim to create what will minimize negative environmental impacts and connect people to their community and local history. Through my years of experience on multiple building types, I’ve enjoyed being instrumental in all phases of a project.

When I’m not renovating my house, I’m taking in the great outdoors with my dog, making candles, SCUBA diving, traveling while simultaneously planning my next trip, or trying something new.
