A passion for design An affinity for adventure I enjoy the challenge of turning the fear of the unknown into excitement and turning any experience into an opportunity for self-discovery and self-growth. I spend time exploring in hopes that it will influence my designs and give me a better understanding of how to positively impact users by employing nature in the built environment. Traveling has given me a strong desire to create spaces that make lasting impressions on its users through bold and memorable design. The implication of biophilic design is important to me. I intend to pursue sustainable design to create places that enrich lives and endure for decades. I aim to learn from the past, help shape the present and future and create a built environment that is respectful of resources and beautiful in every way.
CIPRĂ‰S Barcelona, Spain | Boutique Hotel | 15 Weeks | 70,000 Sq. Ft.
The design of CiprĂŠs Hotel is inspired by the structure and properties of Parque del Laberinto de Horta. The master planned maze-like gardens will serve as the inspiration for the overall space plan. Throughout the space, a combination of rectilinear and curvilinear lines, shapes, and forms mimic the elements found within the structure of Parque del Laberinto de Horta and also demonstrate the balance of the hotel's two main functions, experience, and comfort. Curvilinear elements create a sense of community and bonding, essential to the experience of the guest. Ample natural lighting and views to the outside bring the outdoors in. The style of the furniture and architecture is modern with a high focus on luxury. This serves both in functionality to run the hotel as well as aesthetically, calling to mind the natural origins of the concept. The overall design succeeds in creating a space that is both comfortable and provides an unforgettable experience for hotels guests.

The design solution for the Steiner Residence of Tallahassee, Florida will reflect the need for intuitive use by the family for daily life. The client requires the Mediterranean Revival house to be updated to suit their needs as a primary residence. The home is currently being used by three companies as office space. The new home needs to reflect a more modern style. The clients desire a home that will encourage family bonding during standard every day activities. The concept of this design is to create a seamless and meaningful space that fosters creativity and memory making through the use of barrierfree details and the incorporation of the family individuality. The concept will be demonstrated through an open floor plan keeping key areas of the home close in proximity to encourage interaction between family members. The ease of use of the home will rejuvenate its users at the end of a long day of school or work and will act as a sanctuary for each member of the family.

A RETAIL EXPERIENCE Retail Design + Branding | 3 Weeks 5,000 sq ft | Spring 2016 The concept for the retail experience will be influenced by defragmentation. In the maintenance of file systems, defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of “clutter”. The concept of defragmentation will be demonstrated physically through linear forms throughout the space. Crisp lines and an open floor plan with clear sight lines will reinforce the removal of “clutter” in order to optimize the retail experience. The use of an app that allows the consumer to pay on their mobile phone as opposed to waiting in line at the cash register will support the concept of defragmentation. Technology has become normal to interact with on a daily basis and SURGE uses it to its advantage. Through the app SURGE allows customers to locate a store and check the current food menu all while paying directly from their phones. Users can set preferences such as “The Usual” and using a one click order system, their food and beverages will be prepared and ready to pick up before they arrive. This creates a personal experience for every individual that utilizes SURGE’S app and its amenities.

The design solution for KUIU a corporate office located in Denver Colorado was successful in creating an office space with a post-bureaucratic organizational structure that stayed true the Kuiuâ€™s core values of being transparent. With the concept of lower antelope canyon as a driving force, the space was created with strong graphic qualities that created visual interest as well as unique architectural features to stimulate creativity and content in employees. Providing employee choice as to how and where to work, while intuitively forcing collaboration will facilitate serendipitous encounters and random acts of creativity. In order to accomplish this, the office includes large multi-functional spaces with flexible furniture arrangements in the requested open environment. The space is visually stimulating and fun to work within. It inspires creativity and is a constant reminder of who the company is at its core, inspiring company pride and great morale among employees.
