I am a recent graduate of Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning and Design, with a Masters in Architecture. A lifelong lover of transportation and cities, I have focused my studies on urban design, historic preservation, and rail transportation. I have also been an avid watercolor artist most of my life, and try to incorporate my love of hand-rendering into my projects whenever possible.
