AIA, LEED® AP
I love that architecture is a combination of artistic concepts and rational problem-solving. It is refreshingly optimistic to work in a profession that shapes the world in a way that is functional, beautiful, and engaging, and that’s what really has me hooked. Architecture attracts passionate and highly motivated individuals, which makes it an energetic and rewarding field. I’m a big advocate for sustainable design and environmental ethics. In college my studies largely focused on sustainable design, and I earned my masters degree with an emphasis in ecological design. The opportunities to merge environmental ethics with social advocacy, using responsible technology and smart growth to improve access to resources and comfortable living, truly inspire me.
