About 

I am currently a Themed Entertainment Designer working on projects ranging from stage designs to themed attractions for major theme park companies.

My interest in architecture dates back to my years in junior high school fantasizing about designing roller coasters. The roller coaster designing spawned a design interest gravitating toward architecture during my high school career.

When I transferred to Woodbury University’s School of Architecture, it allowed me to study in Tahiti, China, Barcelona, and Berlin. I have an interest in creating spaces inspired by the manipulations of everyday materials and producing the architecture with prefabricated parts to fuse innovative design concepts with the reality of building materials.

I am hoping that within my career, I can make a difference in the Themed Entertainment Industry with my personal interests and design solutions.
