Remodeling cars, building computers and framing homes has left me with the desire to continue solving complex problems within design through environmentally technical and friendly solutions. With a background in sustainable architecture from University of Oregon and a Masters of Urban Design from the University of British Columbia I bring with me a passion for environmental design and determination to work towards a greener future.

My interests lie in solving everyday architectural and urban design problems with low impact design systems. We often try and solve complex urban challenges through advancements in technology but fail to utilize natural systems found everyday around us in nature.

With urban environments rapidly increasing in density everyday and climate change growing in severity its long overdue to consider environmentally sound systems that often outlast their mechanically inclined partners when it comes to design.
