Hattiesburg, MS, US



I am a registered architect licensed in the state of Mississippi and certified by NCARB. Most recently, I worked as a Project Architect for Landry and Lewis Architects in Hattiesburg, MS and have worked there  for over 6 years. I have worked in the Architecture Industry since 2001, gaining valuable and extensive experience in all the facets of the Architecture profession. As a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, I was trained in the Beaux Arts tradition, learning hand drafting and drawing, watercolor rendering, but, most importantly, an excellent knowledge of classical design and proportions. In addition to Architecture, I remain involved in my community as member of the downtown association design committee, playing a vital role in shaping not only the architecture of downtown Hattiesburg, but, also improving its commerce through urban planning. And, I am member of the Main Street United Methodist Church serving as First Tenor in the Chancel Choir.

University of Notre Dame, South Bend, IN, US, BArch, School of Architecture

"From the smallest details to the most profound ideals, the School of Architecture strives to educate leaders who will build a future at once more humane, functional and beautiful.

Architecture does more than give us the structures where we live; it gives structure to our lives. In the design of our cities and towns, our neighborhoods, our homes and offices and parks and places of worship, architecture should reflect our highest aspirations.

With that as our blueprint, the School of Architecture emphasizes traditional and classical design, the timely and timeless principles that encourage beauty, community and sustainability. Using both cutting-edge technology and time-tested techniques that were a necessary part of sustainable building before the Industrial Revolution, the School of Architecture has established itself as a leader in the modern green movement. We are part of a continuum from the past to the future, honoring a grand legacy and carrying it forward with new ideas and technologies that preserve both the built and natural environments.

These principles establish civic identity and facilitate long-term sustainability, built to a human scale. Great architecture meets present needs without compromising uses by future generations. It is at once local in scale, global in scope and eternal in aspiration."
