Los Angeles, CA, US



I am passionate about creating innovative architectural solutions that challenge the status quo. I am interested in the value that good design has to offer and am dedicated to exploring how ambitious design can add value within real world constraints.

Currently, I live and work in the Laguna Beach, Ca at Horst Architects, an Architecture firm that has gained a reputation for creating thoughtful pieces of architecture. Project managing high-end residential architecture and more intimate commercial projects such as boutique hotels and art galleries.

I have always believed in the power of exploration, whether that be in the physical realm or conceptual. The idea of experimentation is one that I find both exhilarating and rewarding and has lead me to live around the world from California, London, Edinburgh, Berlin and Sweden. Each of these loci enriched both my architectural vocabulary and more importantly my life experiences.

I am proficient in a range of software but maintain that the best designs are derived from good coffee, thoughtful conversations and a pencil.
