As an architecture and urban design professional I have a strong commitment to high-quality design and sustainable community development. With three years combined professional architecture and urban design experience in both public and private sectors, I have had hands on experience at all stages of project design, development, and administration.
Completion of a Bachelor in Architecture degree from the University of Notre Dame and a Master of Urban Design degree from Carnegie Mellon University, a five year professional degree and 12 month graduate program, respectively, has afforded me the opportunity to learn about and practice my profession in various global contexts. Undergraduate and graduate design experiences in Rome, Italy and Kigali, Rwanda and my recent travel and reserach sabatical in Santiago, Chile augment a globalized understanding of architecture and urban design practices and the importance of context, character, client, and comprehensive planning.
These experiences, coupled with a diverse professional portfolio of urban design and K-12 educational projects, have shaped a strong analytical and technical skillset and a unique perspective of the architecture development process. Core competencies include:
- Zoning Code Administration and Analysis
- Public Outreach Facilitation
- Urban Design
- Transit Oriented Development
- Design Guidelines
- Framework Plan and Systems Development
- Master Plan and Site Design
- Architectural Design and Detailing
