New York, NY US



I moved to Portland, Oregon two years ago to work in product and furniture design after graduating with an undergraduate degree in architecture from the University of Colorado.  I am now dedicated to bringing my design experience and talents to the practice of architecture, my true desired profession.  I have identified myself as a designer since childhood, and have always been intrigued with the built environment.  I am looking forward to the opportunities that exist in the changing world of architecture, and I believe that I would provide a fresh and progressive contribution to any working design team.
