About 

After growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas, I received my architectural education at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. There, nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, I developed an appreciation for the tectonic and sensory nature of design and building. Encouraged by my early professional experiences and mentors, I later went on to pursue a focus in urban design at the University of Toronto. Engaged in this transforming urban metropolis, I was able to further pursue my interests in the design of the cityscape. My professional interests span the overlapping fields of architecture, landscape, and urbanism, with personal interests extending to furniture design, fabrication, photography, and various forms of musical expression.

I am a Registered Architect and hold NCARB certification.
