I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, where at a young age I was exposed to many beautiful works of art and architecture. These experiences stayed with me through the move to the small town of Stoneville, North Carolina where I was primarily raised. I consider my interest in architecture being deeply rooted in the contrast of these two worlds: the hustle and bustle of the city life in one and the quiet equanimity of the mountains in the other. I love both atmospheres equally and this love has translated greatly into the way I view architecture.
While acquiring my B. Arch I have had great interest in fabrication design, taking studios focused on prototyping, materiality, detailing, and sustainability. After graduation, I plan to work for several years before going back to school and acquiring a masters in sustainable design.
My work is centered around community interaction, the relationship between the natural and built environment, and the innovative solutions that can be achieved through technological advancement.
I hope to work with these concepts more in the professional world in a firm that strives for continual advancement on all fronts of design to improve individual lives and community experiences.
