I seek a design position to further my education and processes in order to enhance my established design intelligence.

My experience within woodworking, metal work, digital fabrication, design, and graphic design has allowed me to implement generative and parametric design tool-sets, towards a new perception of everyday spaces.

At AS+GG innovation of our design process is vital in the creation of intelligent architecture. As an applications specialist I purvey the tools available for design and those not yet considered for the process. This position requires daily application of problem solving skills. Through my architectural education these skills become a viable means for applying architectural methodology, enabling me to see an application for its strength in achieving cutting edge solutions that will directly affect our built environment.
