>>printable version objective
  i am currently most inspired by work that attempts to address the unyielding growth of our cities. more often than not, i find myself looking towards the progressive models found in europe. to these ends, i hope to continue to build on my professional design experience while contributing to the architectural and urban design professions.

  other experience
11.1989 to 04.1996 i worked as a picture framer parttime for seven years beginning in high school. the experience has proven invaluable and forced the early development of a ‘graphic eye.’ the experiences with proportion and especially color still continue to inform all aspects of my work today.
  interests
  it used to be that my passion for mountainbiking dominated my interests. still adjusting to east-coast terrain, i find my mountain bike collecting dust. my current obsessions include urban density, web design/development and scripting my own bits. i also enjoy basketball and traveling abroad.
