Currently, I am in my second year of graduate school seeking a Master of Architecture and Preservation Studies Certificate. My interests are within the Architecture and Urban Design realm, but my experience has expanded to studies and application of design for adaptive reuse, design-build and fabrication, since moving to New Orleans. Below are some primary skills I have gained at this stage of my academic and professional career:

-building envelope assessment (2+)
-woodwork (2+)
-steel fabrication/welding (2+)
-design at urban planning scale, multi-use building scale and common objects scale such as benches and tables (3+)
-drafting construction documents (2+)
-ADA compliancy evaluation and drafting of existing conditions (2+)
-capacity studies for zoning and code application (4+)
-client meetings (4+)
-site visit (4+)
-project planning (2+)
-graphic design (7+)
-photography (7+)
-communications coordinator (2+)
-teaching assistant in Digital Media (AutoCAD, Rhino, Revit, Adobe Software, laser cutting and woodshop) (graduate school)

My interests and skills have led me to pursue collaboration with other professionals in similar and dissimilar fields. My objective is to continue these collaborations throughout my career. If you want to start a conversation about my work or potential design collective, please contact me via email or phone:
