Hi, thanks for taking the time to check out my work!


I am currently working on custom design & fabrication projects and artwork out of Humanmade, The Box Shop, and my 1 bedroom Mission apartment. Over the past 10 years I have embedded myself in the local architecture, maker, and burner scenes here in the Bay Area. These communities, mentors, and friends have provided resources and opportunities to expand my tool sets from conceptual art, bronze casting, and mix media sculpture to project management and delivery, 3D parametric modeling and visualization, interactive LED programming, mapped projection & animation, and immersive experience design.

With eight years under my belt as an architectural designer at both an international corporate firm and a local high end residential firm, I have a great deal of experience delivering large, complex projects on time and on budget. I have a passion for sustainable, integrated design, and my ongoing art explorations often source salvaged material and champion our home planet through education and activism. I try to keep a plethora of side projects going at all times to continue an unencumbered creative discourse.
