I am an architectural designer with 17 years of experience helping clients realize new and enriching ways of working, living, healing and learning. Those experiences have shaped a belief that we can find beauty in simple solutions that not only create something new, but also better.
I've had the opportunity to lead design of award-winning civic, commercial and health projects - nationally and internationally. Recently, work with the Columbus Metropolitan Library has helped to drive discoveries into what it means to be a library in the 21st century.
I am a licensed Architect (OH) and LEED® accredited designer, as well as a Principal with NBBJ in Columbus, Ohio.
I hold a Masters in Architecture from the Knowlton School of Architecture at the Ohio State University (2006), as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with distinction from Miami University in Ohio (2001).
