I grew up in Frisco just outside of Dallas Texas.  I completed my Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Texas at Austin.  I feel very fortunate to have learned from an extremely well qualified group of professors and was able to work alongside great peers.

During my education, I learned a great amount, but was always eager and excited to learn more.  I was able to share my passion for learning as a Design Assistant for Professor Smilja Milovanovic-Bertram by aiding first-year design students in the development and refinement of their projects. I also served as a Dean's Ambassador for the Architecture School, acting as a liaison between UTOSA and potential incoming students organizing tours and informing visitors about the program.  

I was fortunate enough to participate in the Europe Study Abroad trip which took me to some great places over the course of a semester.  Upon my return I was nominated for the Oglesby Traveling Fellowship.  I have also had the privilege in working with on two projects that were later exhibited in the UTSOA Materials Lab: Think Concrete and Ambiguous Objects.

My time at UT Austin also provided me with a connection to Koko Architecture + Design.  At Koko I spent 6 months as an Intern Architect at their office in New York.  Working at Koko was a tremendous opportunity and a great learning experience.
