DESIGN WORK

As a designer, I draw upon my early experiences in building and fabrication; my training in architecture, at an art school where my repertoire expanded into glassblowing, printmaking, and ceramics; my interest in inhabitation, fortified through PhD studies in Environmental Psychology; and my love for speculative creations, from film sets to utopian dreams. My work ranges from installation pieces built at full scale to drawings that imagine unbuildable worlds. I regularly cross from these artistic projects to commercial architecture and interior jobs for clients—and I find these two modes are mutually beneficial. I am skilled in spatial organization, which helps me solve problems and understand connections that are not always evident.
