Bio I am a versatile and uniquely skilled designer. My professional interests lie in sustainability, social responsibility, rigorous material exploration, meticulous craft, and innovative, elegant design solutions. I graduated with honors from the University of Oregon, earning a professional architecture degree and a fine arts minor. I have a long-standing passion for art, and a background in web development and graphic design.
I have worked in Oregon and India, practicing both vernacular and contemporary architecture, and I am currently based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Please get in touch with any questions, comments, or employment/collaboration opportunities.
