I love what I do because I can express my creativity through the design process, collaborating with my peers often as it provides an opportunity to share and gain knowledge with others. Having prior experience owning a construction company, I am well versed in construction documents and administration, implementing EUA’s standards to ensure a successful outcome. Informed by my interest in sustainability, my passion for architecture stems from my ability to create connections to nature in interior and exterior spaces. After months of hard work, the reward of seeing a project to fruition is comparable to the satisfaction on the last day of school. I enjoy being active and outside; usually running or biking. During the summer, I love water-skiing and my favorite winter vacations are taking ski trips out West.
