about me

I am a recent graduate of the Masters of Architecture Program at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. While enrolled, I completed a concentration in Urbanism that was augmented by my Graduate Research Assistanship at the Design + Society Research Center. My two years at UNCC culminated with my thesis project, in which I researched Community Design Centers throughout the United States and proposed a design for an alternative mobile model of a Community Design Center.

Prior to attending UNCC, I spent two and a half years as an intern at two small architecture firms in Virginia. During my time at these firms I was able to work on a wide variety of projects, including: multi-family residential, custom residential (both new construction and additions and renovations), commercial office buildings, small medical facility upgrades, town and corridor master plan proposals, restaurant interiors, a church, and a car wash. In addition to working on these projects throughout their various phases from schematic design through to construction administration, I also helped implement the use of three-dimensional modeling on many projects at the first firm and worked with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the City of Richmond Planning Department while working on the adaptive reuse of 1930s warehouses in the Scott's Addition Historic District at the second firm.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia in May of 2005. During my final semester, I was a member of the ecoMOD 1 Design Studio. After graduation, I remained in Charlottesville until November to help construct the OUTin House that we had designed during the semester. This experience allowed me to take many of the lessons I had learned during the previous four years and begin to understand how they translated into real world applications, a venture that continues to this day.
