I am currently working with Isaac V. Norris and Associates in Grand Rapids, MI. We are a small firm and we focus a lot on improving the community.

Winsome Builders, Hartville, OH, US, Site Supervisor

I started this business myself in high school as a landscape construction business and passed it off to my father who turned it into a custom home business. Through this company I worked many different aspects of our industry from sales to design to general construction and ended my time there as a supervisor. As a supervisor, I and two employees worked with customers directly to finish small projects. I learned a lot about project management and problem solving at that level.

CAED Eco-Shelter competition, 3rd Place

Students were challenged to create livable shelters from recycled materials. My group created a structure from pallets. We insulated the pallets with recycled newspapers and used a discarded plastic drop cloth as its skin. We implemented day lighting through plastic bottles full of water embedded in the ceiling. Our form allowed for a wall outside in which food could be grown by its inhabitants.
