About 

I am an avid traveler, skier, dog-lover, and cheese enthusiast from the Midwest. When I’m not designing, I’m behind a camera capturing my life’s extraordinary moments and freezing them as memories. Having graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor in Environmental Design, the environment has become a central focus in the way I live.

I am inspired by a force or piece of nature that is abstracted and applied in nuanced ways through form, program, or material and texture. I aspire to continue to be influenced through various landscapes throughout my future. The result not only establishes a stronger design aesthetic or capability, but also binds me closer to my goals of learning to work with and for the environment rather than simply creating beautiful designs.
