About Me

For the past three years, I have practiced in architectural design studios with projects located world wide. The majority of my experience has been in the design of buildings although my passion lies in design that more directly impacts the lives of others.

I enjoy opportunities to create new opportunities for people to participate in the culture of creating and engage in the development of our modern society;  including a health portal for New York City, a Crowdsourced Powered Printer and a DIY intelligent thermostat.

Before working professionally in Architecture, I completed my Masters in Architecture at the University of Kansas. School took my interests and talents and allowed me to develop a professional skill set and a strong design process.  

I spent summers working with kids and helping them discover their world and themselves while teaching for Duke University's Talent Identification Program and developing my own business helping kids learn how to swim.

 

The Basics


I'm a designer first, but I thoroughly enjoy engaging with the world through making interconnected systems to enrich life with more intelligence and interactivity.

The Basics


I'm a designer first, but I thoroughly enjoy engaging with the world through making interconnected systems to enrich life with more intelligence and interactivity. 

 

With a Masters in Architecture, my interests extend the boundaries of a single discipline to encompass a much more holistic view of design to include how people interface and activate engagement with the world around them.  Over the past couple of years I've collaborated as a designer on large scale international architecture with an emphasis in developing my skills within computational design to quickly iterate through complex facade designs, validate designs with data and automate repetitive tasks.

My experience in design computation has provided a foundation to build from and help further my interests in creating new methods for how people interface with the world and the experiences they have when interacting with their physical and digital worlds.

I approach design with passionate rigor to help realize great projects. I believe the future of design is highly collaborative, open source and focused more on investigating intuitive methods existing within us and designing the process for creating itself rather than a single final outcome. It's about working from 100 possible solutions rather than the first solution that comes to mind.  I seek open ended opportunities that often starts with defining the problem before ever creating a solution and hold the possibility of achieving unexpected greatness where others might only reach for completion.

I’ve always been motivated to take action to help others achieve their potential by creating spaces and solutions that have been designed with their current needs and an understanding of the modern world we live in.
