About my work
I see architecture as a means for ensuring the buildings we construct have the best impact they can on people's lives and the environment.
Architecture to me is a collaborative process. I work on houses and business spaces for individuals because I value the strong personal connections that develop while helping owners create the places that mean the most to them.
It's important to me to do what's possible to minimize the environmental impact of the buildings I help design. For this reason I'm especially drawn to remodels and projects that involve reuse of structures and materials in creative ways.
I value uncomplicated design, sparseness, things organized neatly, and the beauty of natural materials. To me, spaces with those qualities are the best backdrops for living and working.
I'm currently living in Seattle and was raised in Yakima, Washington. I discovered architecture in the middle of college as an accounting major. Feeling only half fulfilled, I took an architecture history class as an elective at the suggestion of my mom. It was a clear match.
Prior to starting my own business in 2016 I worked for a handful of architecture firms in Seattle. My firm experience included work on mid-rise mixed use structures, high-rise residential towers, university libraries, houses, and cabins.
I like electronic music, board games, cocktails, and rainy Seattle days.
