Lakewood, CO, US



I grew up in Calumet, Michigan an historical mining town located in the Upper Peninsula. I have always enjoyed drawing, especially floor plans, and building, especially Legos. Once I took technical, mechanical, and architectural drafting in high school, I knew what I wanted to study in college.


I started my collegiate career at Northern Michigan University progressing through the 2-year pre-architecture program which was designed to flow directly into University of Michigan's architecture program. After my bachelor's degree in Ann Arbor, I took a few years off from school to Intern in the real-world.

Currently, I am located in the Denver metro area where I have earned my Master's degree from the University of Colorado at Denver. My dog and I are also enjoying the wonderful weather and lovely landscape of the West.
