I’ve been in the architecture field for 8 years, beginning as an intern for a local architecture firm. My true professional goal is becoming a licensed architect and I am currently taking the A.R.E to get licensed in the state of Kentucky. I’ve spent most of my career working on projects ranging from small residential work to multi-story buildings and creating detailed drawings for various construction types. As a side endeavor, I like to read architectural philosophy which allows me to continually bring new ideas and ways of thinking to the drafting board.

I’m a person that is constantly looking at architecture and studying the interaction between philosophy and architecture.  I’m very passionate about design and architecture which allows me to excel at delivering top quality deliverables both on time and with a high quality level. When it comes to design management, I’m highly organized and pride myself on being extremely attentive to the architectural details that matter and make the project come to life.
