I am a designer, thinker, runner, and photographer. I believe that successful design should fundamentally do no harm to its context, whether it be a city, a landscape, or the planet as a whole. I am interested in an architecture that is re-generative or that creates a system of positive change in its social and ecological environment.

I am a recent graduate from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. Although I was raised in the small city of Reno, Nevada, I find my true home in larger metropolitan areas where streets are walkable and neigborhoods are vibrant.

I aspire to practice architecture and eventually attend graduate school to explore some of my many curiosities. But for now, I'll explore, learn, and start a new chapter.
