I believe that design is the solution to problems at all scales.
I find that my interests in the design profession are mostly targeted at solving problems - whether they are aesthetic issues of form, scale, and material, or hiccups in the design and production process. My work ranges from architectural projects on the scale of skyscrapers to graphic design an almost obsessive placement of shapes and typography. I see design as a scalar solution for issues of experience, information, and ugliness.
I've had the privilege of being involved with architectural higher-education while working. I have been a visiting critic at various architecture schools including Pratt Institute, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, Temple, New York Institute of Technology and Syracuse University.
I studied architecture at Syracuse University where I received a Bachelor of Architecture in 2013. Upon graduation, I was awarded the Luther Gifford Prize, an annual award for highest rank in architectural scholarship. My thesis, Simultaneous Cities was awarded a Dean's Citation for Excellence in Thesis Design.
