Born and raised in Colorado, I am an architectural designer and a recent Master of Architecture graduate from the University of Colorado at Denver's College of Architecture and Planning program. Currently I work as Research Associate at the Colorado Center for Community Development, a non-profit organization specializing in underserved rural communities  in Colorado. My design experience has been diverse, involving design-build construction and fabrication, marketing, architectural schematic design and design development, as well as construction documentation and construction administration.
