A Bit About Me

I am a born and raised Washingtonian with a passion for art and design. I am inspired by people's stories and the beauty found in nature. My goal in life is to make the world a better place. This drives my passion for sustainable Design and the art of making a building work for and with the user. and the environment.  I strive for authenticity and originality in my designs and in my art. I use art to visualize and capture the world around me. I hope to inspire people to see the beauty around them and within themselves while continuing to perfect my craft.
