Eugene, OR, US



I am currently working on my Master's of Architecture at the University of Oregon with an emphasis in Urban Design. I also have earned an Associate's degree in Applied Science with a concentration in architecture and a Bachelor's degree in Biology.

I have worked for a small firm in Indianapolis, Indiana where I gained a lot of real-world experience from the beginning steps of writing grants to the final steps of construction documents as well as punch lists before the building is occupied.

Being a musician as well, I have an interest in research on how acoustics can help create more healthy and positive experiences within urban environments.

I also love cycling around cities, drinking a good cup of tea, and losing myself in a good book.



Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Eugene, OR, US, Architectural Intern

Initially, I was hired to help solve the acoustic troubles of a room that was meant to be a gathering space for faculty meetings as well as spill over space for the adjacent cafe. Once the treatments were designed, I was asked to be the design lead for the complete remodel of the room.
