The University of Tennessee - Knoxville, knoxville, College of Architecture Instructor

I co-taught an intensive undergraduate summer course combining fundamental design practices and representation alongside the Director of Interior Design. My duties included introducing students to various 2D and 3D software in conjunction with analog and digital fabrication methods through the investigation of materials, assembly, and tectonics. Students were asked to investigate material limitations, develop a process or approach to making using the specifics of each toolset all the while testing the capabilities of these technologies. A series of weekly design projects explored the translation of digital models generated from physical and digital 2D drawings into physical artifacts through both manual and digital fabrication tools. Students explored techniques utilizing a combination of laser-cutting, 3D-printing, plaster casting, CNC-routing, and CNC-milling. Each design exercise required a variety of digital and analog processes, post-production skills, and assembly culminating in a final project that highlighted process as integral to the final result.

The University of Tennessee - Knoxville, Knoxville, TN, US, Digital Fabrication Assistant

As a Digital Fabrication Assistant at the UT FabLab, I advised and assisted students and faculty in the realization of projects that utilize a variety of fabrication tools and techniques. My role required me to program digital files, advise on material choice, oversea machine operation and teach the safe and proper operation of digital fabrication equipment. This included the programming, operation, and maintenance of various types of 3D printer, 3 and 4 axis CNC mills, Abrasive Water-Jet, laser cutters, 3D scanners, and industrial robotic manipulators (robotic arms). I also had the opportunity to train other Fabrication Assistants on the programming, operation and safety protocols of these tools and occasionally provide demonstrations of the capabilities of the college's investment for visiting alumni and other interested parties.

The University of Tennessee - Knoxville, Knoxville, TN, US, Graduate Research Assistant

I worked directly with the Director of the School of Architecture to initiate a schematic redesign of the college’s website and subsequent implementation of proposed changes. My role required weekly meetings to evaluate the progress of precedent analysis, image curation, layout design, and to discuss potential trajectories as they relate to the identity of the college.

Alpha Rho Chi Medal, 1st Place

"Since 1931, the Alpha Rho Chi Medal has recognized graduating architecture students for their leadership and service and what they offer the future of the profession. Alpha Rho Chi believes strong leaders are just as essential as strong designers. The award was established to recognize qualities not necessarily pertaining to studio and scholarship."

"Judged by the faculty of each school, the medal is presented to the graduating senior who has shown an ability for leadership, performed willing service for his or her school or department, and gives promise of real professional merit through his or her attitude and personality."
