who i am.
Designer/Intern-Architect. I am a 2010 graduate of Kansas State University with my Master of Architecture from the College of Architecture, Planning and Design. I was called to be an architect at an early age through my constant curiosity and creative imagination while designing and modelling countless forts and lego cities and buildings.
Currently I specialize in commercial and sports architecture with the firm of HOK in Kansas City, MO. I grew up and worked in Mid-Missouri sandwiching in seven years in Manhattan, Kansas for school and work as well. I have had study tours to such far locales as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Oslo, Norway. In addition, I spent a semester abroad in Prague, Czech Republic with associated travels throughout Europe.
Having lived in cities ranging in population from forty thousand to two million and everywhere in between, I have been exposed to and observed the goings on and lifestyles of different cities and cultures. What I've learned is that a city's environment and its architecture define the nature of how people create their niches. From this I believe the designed environment helps to give people a sense of place, a unique but interconnected identity, somewhere to live, work, play, and dream.
In my free time I love to play soccer, watch movies, listen to all genres of music, and go biking.
