I'm an architecture professional with 6+ years of wide-ranging international experience. I'm interested in sustainable design, digital fabrication and interactive architecture.

I'm familiar with both metric and imperial systems, most US and international standards (ADA, UBC, IBC, CHPS etc.) and have experience with all phases of the planning and building process.

I'm open to new part or full-time opportunities on a contract or permanent basis.
