I'm a designer living and working in Venice, CA. I earned my M.Arch I from Syracuse University and my B.S. in Architecture from Georgia Tech. 

After Syracuse, I worked at Bushman Dreyfus Architects in Charlottesville, VA for three years. In addition to producing drawings, I helped manage residential projects (mostly renovations), coordinate with clients, consultants, and contractors, and produced marketing materials and renders for clients. My last year there I was the project manager for the firm's public art and design competition, managing the website, juried event, and public exhibition of the winners.

I am currently at the Los Angeles Design Group, where I work on mostly residential projects and assist with details and construction sets in the office.

My other interests include photography and music.
