About 

I am an architectural designer specializing in visual display coordination. With eight years of professional experience, I am currently seeking a new creative opportunity in the Pacific Northwest. I am passionate about design and have a specific interest in historic preservation, adaptive reuse and sustainable projects.  I find inspiration in alternative design formats and would like to explore creative territory in graphics, landscapes, interior design, installations, exhibitions and objects.
