I am an architectural designer and artist with a growing knowledge of fabrication and photography. I am an avid painter and illustrator with a love for freehand drawing, and most recently have been involved in wood, leather and metal work, sculpture, graphic design and print. My passions ascribe to a higher understanding of materiality and craftsmanship with a strong respect for context and source. I also have a love for exploration, history, and culture. I approach every project; architectural and other, with the desire to explore new aspects of design and fabrication while discovering something new about myself.
I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where I received my Bachelor of Architecture in the Spring of 2014. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and hold a minor in Sustainable Environments. I currently reside in the Bay Area.
I founded a handcrafted leather goods company a few years ago, works for purchase can be found here: www.thirtyeighthparallel.bigcartel.com. It is a home for my many tactile and material explorations; all pieces are designed, proto-typed and produced in my modest North Bay studio.
