My professional experience has been primarily focused on corporate design but my interests have always lied in adaptive reuse and sustainable architecture.  Collaborating with the client to find the best concept that suits their personality, visions, and needs is a crucial phase in the design process, one which I think is often overlooked.  I am an excellent problem solver with an open mind, positive outlook, and an eagerness to learn.  My hope is to find a company that I can grow with and encourages me to push my creative boundaries.
