My goal is to gain experience within the design field to improve the standard quality of living and strengthen connections between design efficiency, sustainability, new technologies, and quality aesthetic.

I recently graduated with my Masters in Architecture and am looking for employment in the design field within Portland, OR.  Other than architecture, I am interested in humanitarian work, food security, urban development and alternative transportation, community rights, and permaculture.
