About 

I am a graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. I also received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture as well as a Minor in Art and Design.

 

During my time at BGO Architects and Toll Brothers, I have worked on a variety of multi-family and luxury single family projects. My involvement with these projects range from elevations and materials design, building and floor plans development, site planning, zoning ordinance research, and client communications.  Prior to that, I was a Creative Design Specialist at Millward Brown where I collaborated with clients and marketing researchers to help create better stories by enhancing verbal ideas into creative visuals. I also had multiple architecture internships before my full time career where I worked on putting together massing models, concept designs, as well as general drawings for various large-scale projects.
