Chicago, IL, US



After graduating high school in Tennessee, I studied architecture at the University of Memphis for 1 year. I joined the US Coast Guard and completed 4 years of active duty service in the Alexandria, VA and Washington, DC area. I attended Catholic University of America, in Washington, DC and received my Bachelors of Science in Architecture in 2016. I have worked part time for AECOM (Legacy URS) since Summer 2013, interning in the architecture department and marketing department. In Fall 2015, I studied full time in Paris, France with the CUA Architecture study abroad program and that was a valuable and incredibly fulfilling experience. I started work at //3877, after graduation. It’s a small boutique design firm specializing in high end residential, restaurants, and hotels. My area of expertise was multi family and single family homes. I also worked on multiple restaurants in the DC area. I recently moved to Chicago, IL, and started Graduate School at Illinois Institute of Technology for a Masters of Architecture. I enjoy to play volleyball and ride my bike for exercise. I travel and sketch for fun and frequently update my Instagram with photos.
