About 

I believe in Architecture. Capital ‘A’ Architecture. I believe in an honesty to materiality and the poetic moments that can only be experienced from a thoughtful and well-tailored space. I believe in connections that respond deeply to the history and landscape with intention and care. I believe in Gesamtkunstwerk— “total work of art”. I believe in an unharnessed curiosity and a boundless commitment to creating beautiful and meaningful work.

As a recent graduate of University of Oregon’s duel Master of Architecture + Master of Interior Architecture program, I’m looking to become part of a team of creative artists, builders, craftspeople, thinkers, and those that believe in a collective pursuit of a new timeless Architectural expression.
