DESIGNER | LEADER | ADVOCATE
Assoc. AIA | LEED AP BD+C | LFA | Fitwel Ambassador
Integrating form, experience, and sustainability through a story to emphasize the architecture as one emotional gesture. Architecture has become more than a career…it’s a mission.
I am currently a Project Designer at Hammond Wilson Architects in Annapolis, MD, as well as, an Adjunct Professor at Anne Arundel Community College. Holding a Bachelor of Science and Master’s degree in Architecture with a focus in Scared/Cultural Spaces from The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. Also, I hold a Masters of Science in Sustainable Design as well.
I have received numerous awards from design competitions throughout graduate school and during my early professional career including team AIA|DC Chapter design awards.
During my professional career, I have been focused and interested on simple, modern architecture through its importance and relation to the site and story of the client. But more importantly, creating space that generates a positive imprint on the user and its surrounding site. Enabling the user to be more connected with nature.
