Our office has grown a bit this summer with the addition of four new hires. Below is a little about each of them.
Architecture is optimism—the capability of imagining and creating a bolder future.
My broad overall goal with regard to life is to try and make a positive difference the best that I can. I feel architecture gives me the best chance at that goal by helping inform the impactful language of the built environment and help raise awareness that space and atmosphere play a significant role in our daily lives. I believe that careful attention to those qualities can make a positive difference.

Architecture continues to grow more and more complex for me, especially since I have started working these past two months. What you learn in school and what you learn in real practice are so different. In a way, I feel like I am starting my first year of architecture school over. However, I am still interested in the same ideas. I love that architecture can engage all of one’s senses to create a unique experience for each individual. Spaces that I find the most moving don’t shout for my attention, rather they let me explore and discover moments on my own through the way they interact with my body.
