Artist in Residence, Gray Area, 2019

Masters of Architecture, California College of the Arts, 2009-2012

Bachelors of Fine Arts, University of California Santa Cruz, 2000-2004


Since establishing my own studio/practice in January of 2019, I have focused on custom design & fabrication projects and artwork. 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, steel & woodworking, mix media sculpture, and public art & installation, to 3D parametric modeling and visualization, branding, logos & signage, theatrical production & stage design, custom interior design & production, interactive LED programming, mapped projection & animation, immersive experience design, and project management & delivery.

With a decade 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 artistic explorations often source salvaged material and champion social and environmental stewardship & responsibility through education and activism. I try to keep a multitude of projects going at all times to continue an unencumbered creative discourse.


Thanks for taking the time to check out my work!
