Los Angeles, CA, US



I am an explorer of spaces, climber of mountains, bicycle advocate, typography addict, and translator of data. I work to communicate between spaces and users, and learn from both sides of that equation every day. My practice spans project types from streetscapes to stadiums, workplaces to parks, but my particular interest is improving the built environment for public good.
