I'm a designer, strategist, researcher, and systems thinker. I’m at my best developing and employing digital tools and methods to solve challenging, real-world problems in innovative ways. My architecture work has emphasized bringing a computational approach to all design stages, from pre-design analysis to direct-to-fabrication parametric modeling and documentation.

I'm interested in the intersection of design and strategy, and I'm as comfortable developing systems, policies, and frameworks for solving problems as I am making physical objects. I also have an interest in the potential for overlap between architecture and spaceflight, and am exploring ways architects can contribute to the burgeoning commercial spaceflight sector.

I've been working in architecture in Los Angeles since completing graduate school. My previous background is in public policy and strategic management.
