I am passionate about designing spaces and things to be experienced, to provide physical feedback to individuals and to create meaning  within and without at the same time. 


I approach design problems and projects as architectural parables in my own narrative, and I think that to practice architecture, and design, in general, is to take a stance on interaction—between materials, people, nature, and ideas. 


The aim is to make informed claims about those interactions through storytelling, problem-solving, and experiential design to build awareness and create balance.
