I grew up in California and fell in love with the natural world at an early age.

During my teenage years in Sebastopol, CA. I awoke to the understanding that the way we are living on this planet is destructive and unsustainable.

So I moved to Oregon to study Architecture at the University of Oregon. I learned as much as I could about why we live the way we do and what other options we have.

After college I moved to Portland, OR. to work with Mark Lakeman and The City Repair Project. I served as Placemaking coordinator to help facilitate projects for the Village Building Convergence.

I am currently one of the main partners in a fabric architecture company called GuildWorks but am also working on other projects in Sebastopol, CA. such as the Sebastopol Village Building Convergence.
