Junior Designer Last Updated: August 28, 2017 (26 days ago)

I am interested in bringing together the delight of the human imagination and material precision in architecture.

On a team, I bring lateral thinking, a commitment to exploratory research and drawing, and material curiosity to the table. MY work at various firms in grad school  Allowed  me to experience different design attitudes, team structures, BIM softwares, and clientele, while developing lean, mean time management strategies and quality control systems for projects.

Before pursuing my MArch, I came from a fine arts background, with a BA in art history and curatorial work. My studies in grad school built on that experience, adding in design research, design thinking, and technical studies to create a robust interdisciplinary approach to architecture. My personal practice includes extensive hand and studio craft, in addition to drawing, collage, and rendering.
