BIO

I grew up in Santa Clara, California, and transplanted to the midwest in high school. After a brief stent studying engineering, I switched gears and took 2 years of pre-architecture courses at the College of Dupage. From there, I transferred into a year-long study abroad program in Versailles, France through the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana. After completing my Bachelors of Science in Architecture at UIUC, I interned for a year before heading to Seattle, Washington to attend the master of architecture program at the University of Washington. During my time there, I worked in the schools wood and metal shop and developed a love for fine furniture building. In addition to these traditional skill sets, I also completed a certificate in digital design and fabrication, and wrote my thesis on the place of Craft and the Craftsman in the 21st century. After grad school, I worked for Dewberry architects for 3 years. During this time I became a licensed architect, working mostly with Civic Architecture - specifically Police and Fire Stations, City Halls, and Libraries.
