HELLO! Thank you for viewing my collection of work. I am currently an Architect In Training in Seattle, Washington, where I also am a freelance graphic artist. I love to make - on a variety of scales. As an architect, I enjoy the long-term scale of projects that maintain a high level of detail and coordination among diverse disciplines. As an artist, I enjoy learning about the specific qualities of a material, subject, or concept, and exploring how to turn something conceptual into a piece of tangible visual information. I am encouraged by the quintessential challenge that architecture brings - whether it is a formalized/structural architecture, or a metaphorical/experienced architecture. My curiosity for the built environment is largely what fuels my design intents as an architect and an artist, and has given me opportunities to study in England and Italy. My Master's Thesis Project, "Choreographed Architecture," analyzed dance & human movement as a tool to generate physical form, combining my interests in both dance and architecture.
