Originally from Seattle, I have spent the last six years living in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, and in 2020 received my Master of Architecture from the Spitzer School of Architecture at City College, where I currently co-teach a 12-credit graduate design studio. I’m proficient in Rhino, Revit, AutoCAD, V-Ray, Grasshopper, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, and SketchUp, with an additional 6 years of carpentry and fine woodworking experience in professional cabinet and furniture shops.

My education, both from school and living in New York, has catalyzed a deep and relentless curiosity in the ecology of the city, the complex forces and invisible infrastructure that affect us, and how architecture can define its role in society. I try to use architecture to question, investigate, and respond to these forces, constantly aspiring to a process that meaningfully engages those around me and the community at large across a multitude of scales.

Prior to moving to New York I served as the purchasing agent for Residential and Dining Services at the Evergreen State College, where I was a key member of the project management team for large scale remodels and residential maintenance, controlled spending, maintained relationships with dozens of vendors, and was a point person between different departments.

Across the board, professionally and academically, I cherish and prioritize communication and collaboration, both because I enjoy working with other people and because I am a better architect and thinker when I do. With architecture as a lens to constantly engage with and ask questions about the world, I’m excited to continue to learn from and with others far into the future.


Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture, New York, NY, US, Adjunct Professor

I teach Unit 25—a 12-credit, graduate-level design studio for second- and third-year students—alongside architect Nandini Bagchee and anthropologist Vyjayanthi Rao. We’re interested in the agency and role of architecture in practices of culture-making, using central Queens as a site of immense complexity that cannot be adequately addressed with traditional research and design methodologies. My role is to assist students in developing rigorous investigative methods and concepts that can be translated into effective drawings, instruments for further iteration, and, ultimately, new types of architecture and collectivity.
