I am an Architectural Designer with a background in fabrication and construction.

Since January of 2019, I worked as lead designer for a design-build firm. The role focused on designing, documenting, and managing construction for luxury off-grid structures. This required management of design, fabrication, logistics, and construction. Prior to working as lead designer, I worked part time for this firm as a designer, developing design iterations of materials and details prior to the company working toward large scale production.

From 2015-2018, I worked for a large Colorado Construction firm as a BIM Coordinator and Project Engineer. This gave me insight into the process and coordination required to construct large scale projects. My position was a unique role of developing drawings for fabrication, coordinating building systems in large projects, and working with architects and subcontractors during construction.
