Becoming

After graduating from high school, I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in southern Italy. The mission widened my perspective due to exposure of a variety of cultures, people, history and architecture. I felt inspired and eager to delve into architectural design and theory.

Upon my return to the states, I began studying at the University of Arizona. There I discovered my potential to make positive impacts on the community. I discovered the reality of architecture and the relationship between the human body and space on conscious and subconscious levels. I'm currently exploring performative design strategies and researching ecological architecture and cities. I believe through the regeneration of existing sites and structures we can combat the climate crisis, urban heat island effect, and harness the skill of water collection.

Mission

Cohesively and responsibly connect the natural and built environments for greater spiritual, mental and physical wellness.
