Design is passion incorporated with function and efficiency. I'm a dreamer with a diligent approach to wonder, curiosity, and learning.  I am enthusiastically interested in permaculture and its relationship to architecture, specifically urban environments, and plan to obtain my PDC this year.  I graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in December 2011 with a B.Arch after a short 4.5 years and am looking to expand upon my small amount of experience.  

Collaborative design is the best way to create architecture.  A social species deserves social acknowledgment in their buildings.
