I love the process of architecture. Coming from a sculpture background, I use study models quite often, and I’m always exploring new ways to model my ideas.  I am very passionate about materials, and feel that materials should be expressed in the design rather than be covered up.  Experimenting with the latest techniques and materials make architecture a constant learning process.  I can’t imagine this discovery process ever getting old!  I strive to learn something new on each project, and find that through collaboration with others the possibilities are endless.
