About 

Architectural and urban designer based in Charlottesville, VA, with professional experience in Washington DC, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Seattle working on a variety of project types from residential and commercial mixed-use to cultural, educational, and adaptive re-use. I hold a Master of Architecture degree with a Certificate in Urban Design from The University of Virginia, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture with a Minor in Music from Washington University in St. Louis. My personal research investigates the spatio-temporal relationships and tensions between historical patterns of urbanization, public policies, mobility infrastructures, and American cultural-geographic identities within the context of global-scale urbanization.  Besides architecture and thinking about cities, I love to draw, drink coffee, and play and record music: particularly blues, jazz, folk, and rock.
