I'm a designer of performative and intimate objects, spaces and interactions.
After earning a Professional Bachelor's of Architecture with an integrated study in Human Factors from the University of Houston, and working in both large and small architecture firms focusing on varied building construction types and sizes, I wanted to research and experiment with different design mediums and scales. I returned to school at Archeworks where I earned a Diploma in Sustainable Environmental & Social Design. As an extension of Pocket Park project team I was part of, I co-founded +space, a non-profit where we investigate methods of vacant space activation through education, experiments and events. It is a this point where I also began teaching introdution design, architecture and planning courses to high school students. The small projects the curriculum focused on sparked an interest in the smaller scale. I then attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to earn a Master's of Design in Designed Objects.
I'm currently an architectural project manager, adjunct professor and director of design.
