This spring I completed my Masters in Architecture at Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan, graduating in May 2022. Previously, I earned an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts & Science at McMaster University, culminating with a thesis evaluating climate policy in California and Texas.

Throughout graduate school, my work has emphasized appreciation of the natural environment before designing any built additions to it. Environmental justice, social equity, and specific context are of equal importance in my approach to design. My design process begins with research across cultural, social, economic, and built factors that compose the local context. To me, the most environmentally sustainable buildings are the ones that already exist. Within sustainable design, I am passionate about passive building design, building reuse, and deconstruction. I hope to become a licensed architect, LEED AP, and Living Future Accredited.
