M.I.A. Food Drink Entertainment, Oxford, OH, US, Bar tender

A great intro into the restaurant business that helped reinforce my passion for the culinary arts. The sensual experiences learned here can be replicated at a larger scale in the form of architecture.

Cassel Hills Golf Course, Vandalia, OH, US, Course maintainer

Summer job that required mostly manual landscape labor. A great experience that allowed me to get dirty and create landforms that often challenged the golfers.

Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Chicago, IL, US, MArch, Architecture

IIT has challenged the technical part of my design abilities that I felt were lacking during my time at Miami University. I now am developing a stronger sense of reality, functionality, and practicality that can pair well with my already established sense of design.

Miami University, Oxford, OH, US, BArch, Architecture

Opened up the world of architecture. Above all, helped me develop opinion and design skills that would later help establish taste and the ability to create an architecture that was cohesive with it's environment.
