Licensed architect with 5 years of experience working across a range of scales and typologies through all phases of design. Prior experience with core & shell building design, commercial interiors, embassies, consulates, single-family residential, and community projects. Believes that architecture should maintain a clear order that adapts to its context, climate and client; allowing for design that gives more back to a place than it may take away.
