I believe that striving to improve people’s lives through architecture is both a worthwhile and achievable aspiration. I find it truly gratifying to work through a design challenge with a client and come up with a solution they love. I’ve had the opportunity to work in several different facets of architecture throughout my career, ranging from on the job with the general contractor to interior design services on a variety of project types. My diverse background helps me look at projects with a cross-disciplinary perspective, often manifesting in creative problem solving. I also bring a sense of empathy to my projects; this supports a symbiotic working relationship with the client and helps them feel like their goals are truly understood. Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, paddling or anything else outdoors.
