Outside of work I am an avid gardener growing various herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers for my garden. Garden planning and choosing what to try and grow next is on my mind year round.

When my garden isn’t needing weeding or rearranging, my ducks, chickens, and quail are looking for attention and a lap to sit on. I also love to go hiking, traveling, baking, and doing home improvements.

“Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as it is to build a cathedral.” -Frank Lloyd Wright

I grew up in Western New York and chose to move to Boston, MA to attend Wentworth Institute of Technology where I received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a concentration in the Built Environment.

Professionally I am interested in several areas of design:

    -Adaptive Reuse

    -Aging in Place Renovations

    -Human Centered Design

    -Historic Preservation

    -Mixed Use Buildings

    -Single Family Residences

    -Sustainable Design
