After earning my first architectural degree from the University of Florida, I made my way to Los Angeles to earn my second degree from UCLA. During my graduate years I had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and Asia. A highlight was an international design collaboration called 3M futureLAB Studio that successfully designed a 3D-printed micro-living structure. In the early part of my career I aided in the design and project management of varying project typologies including public parks, monuments, religious establishments and educational facilities. This was invaluable experience that ultimately gave me clarity on which part of architectural practice intrigued me professionally – residential design. The application of new methods of construction to residential architecture in a more practical and functional manner while still maintaining interest and diversity is something that I strive to incorporate into the projects I design.
