I am uniquely trained architect and interior designer with strong experience in domestic and international projects of varying scales. With a passion for culture, language, and exploration that permeates my work and ongoing studies, I believe in a world of objects, books, architecture, music, and other outlets that act as vehicles for unique collaborations and portals to a visually sublime experience.
In addition to receiving a Masters of Architecture degree from the University of Houston, graduating at the top of my class, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, French, and Studio Art with honors from Boston College, I studied abroad at the University of Paris III, Sorbonne-Nouvelle, with a particular focus on the history of French Art & Design. I was the recipient of the Graduate Design Award for my Master's Project, founded the Houston Chapter of Architecture for Humanity, and co-founded the University of Houston Materials Library, a satellite of Material Connexion.
Currently, I am managing the redesign of the new Standard Hotel, East Village with Shawn Hausman, working directly with hotelier Andre Balazs and our highly skilled team of consultants in the renovation of the 145-key property. The property is currently under construction, slated for a Fall 2013 completion.
