About 

Currently residing in Honolulu, Hawai'i, I am an aspiring architect who likes challenges and seeing how we can make a difference in the world. Raised in a small rural town in Southern Ohio and beginning my architectural studies in San Antonio, Texas, I have ventured far from home to grow as a professional and individual. As my studies had a Pacific Rim focus, I have studied, worked, and journeyed across East and Southeast Asia. My love for work in unique and challenging places further drives me to assume greater responsibility as an architect and branch beyond the profession to create thoughtful works that build better, healthier, and more resilient communities.
