At IPSA, I conducted quite a few field measurements.
I teamed up with Randy and Danielle for the Rebuilding Exchange Competition in which we had to design a use for unused hollow-frame doors.
This competition for a Natural History Museum only allotted up to 10,000 sq meters of new building. With an extensive program, Alex and I, at MBA/s Architects in Germany, designed a program that would re-purpose existing buildings on the site that have been abandoned. This reuse of structure creates a procession from the old to the new. New construction was used for exhibits while re purposed spaces favored labs and storage.
I studied fine art at CMU before attending Philadelphia University where in 2009 I graduated from a 5 year B.Arch. degree. I worked in the US and abroad as a designer/draftsman completing models, competition entries, and construction documents for various projects. My strengths lie in my ability to conceptualize ideas and utilizing drafting tools to bring those ideas into working drawings.
I recently moved to North California where I love to hike, kayak, and explore the great outdoors. I still pursue art in my free time. I recently received an Honorable Mention at the International Photography Awards in 2012 for my Naked Colors series. I look forward to completing my IDP with a local firm and become a licensed architect.
