I am a designer, a researcher, and an aspiring architect. I have worked for architecture firms of various specializations and sizes in Indiana, Singapore, and Oregon. I am endlessly curious about the world around me. I see research as the way to answer these many questions and to find solutions to challenging problems in the built environment. Currently, I am fixated on the interaction of human physiology, psychology, and behaviors. To fully understand the human experience, particularly in the built environment, we must carefully examine the interaction of these three areas. I anticipate the intersection of my interests becoming a critical focus for how to improve lives by design.

When I'm not in studio or posted up at my laptop, you can find me running for miles, baking, practicing yoga, or watercolor painting.
