5+ years experience intermediate designer & project manager

I am a dual citizen who has spent the last ten years living, working and exploring architecture in Detroit, Tokyo and Vancouver, BC.

Through several trips  my partner and I have come to greatly enjoy the opportunities, both professional and personal, Portland has to offer. Late last year we decided the time was right for change and she recently accepted a position as a planner with the city. I am currently working contract with my previous employer in BC, however, I am actively looking for local employment.

Since graduating with my masters degree in 2014 I have been heavily involved in the rapidly expanding residential market of Vancouver. Though the scale of these projects ranges, most notably I have been the designer and project manager of a transit oriented mixed-use development. Though the project has been my main focus for the past three years, we recently submitted our building permit and tender drawings and I am now looking for new opportunities.

While Vancouver and Portland are similarly sized, I find a large majority of the projects in Portland to be more considered in design and scope. I look forward to applying my skills and experiences to enhance the urban fabric of Portland.
