Summary

I am a recent graduate from Ohio State University with a B.S. in Architecture and a minor in City and Regional Planning. My education has created in me an enthusiasm for urbanism and the architect’s role within the city. My passion for architecture stretches into environmentalism with awareness for sustainable design and adaptive reuse of materials as well. I value our resources and the importance of preserving them with responsible building practices. Talented and results-oriented with strong passion and appreciation for design and detail. Self-motivated with the will and desire to succeed.
