Q: What inspires your work?
A: I’m particularly interested in the stories a project’s context tells and how my design can interact with a location’s history, culture, and people.
Q: When did you know you wanted to be an architect or designer?
A: When I was in the fourth grade my dad bought me an inexpensive home design software, sort of like a knock-off Revit. I spent hours designing and modeling homes for myself, friends, family, and anyone I could think of. After my junior year of high school, a program run by a local community college connected me with a summer internship at a firm in Cedar Rapids. That summer cemented my desire to become an architect.
