Master of Architecture, University of Illinois / Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies, University of Illinois / LEED Green Associate

To me, EWP is: To me, EWP is a synergistic collective of passionate designers working to innovate the idea of the workplace. EWP has been the best place to launch my professional career because I am given the opportunity to thrive and grow. I am surrounded by some of the best architects and interior designers in the field who wholeheartedly support and inspire me every day.

My path to architecture and design: I find architecture to be the juxtaposition between technicalities and aesthetics. I have always appreciated creative solutions to seemingly complex, technical problems. With this, and the help of CAD classes in high school, I realized architecture was the field for me. Architecture can greatly enhance a person’s experiences and the quality of their life. It’s this realization that ultimately motivated me to continue pursuing architecture after my initial curiosity. I draw inspiration from the spaces I inhabit every day, and I hope to do the same for those I create space for.

My role at EWP: I work closely with experienced designers to develop as a young architect. I help with project production and documentation, design development, and I am constantly building professional relationships internally and externally. Collaborating with all extents of the office has helped me to feel confident in my work at EWP as I continuously learn more about the professional scope of architecture.

Outside of EWP: Outside of work, you can find me walking my basset hound on the lakefront trail, binging reality TV, or playing video games. I also enjoy exploring my hometown of Chicago through its food, music, and nightlife with my family and friends.
