I am a Master of Architecture candidate in the College of Architecture and Design at The University of Tennessee. My undergraduate work earned me a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology with a focus on cultural implications of electronically mediated forms of communication. In my spare time my wife and I can be found with our two dogs in tow on some sort of adventure or in search of the next new restaurant in town.

My professional interests include a wide array of topics including but not limited to;optimized construction methods, combination of traditional design and building practices combined with emerging digital techniques, the effects of the built environment on cultural memory and meaning, application of strategic design on the micro to macro scales, and integration of sustainable design as embedded practice applied to all aspects from design to construction.
