The following projects represent my experience thus far. This is only the beginning of a lifetime of designing and exploring.


Site: The northern end of the “Big Dig” in Boston, Massachusetts. The ”Big Dig” is the largest urban construction project in the history of the modern world.

Boston Public Library

Studio Goals: . present the opportunity to design in a true urban environment . provide the opportunity to participate in an element of the “programming” of the project’s requirements

. provide a sufficient amount of time to enable the student to develop a design solution in greater detail

was the major project of the Urban Design Studio the Fall semester of Fifth year, lasting 9 weeks. This project was designed as a twoperson team . Our primary design process was achieved through physical study models.

Fall 5th Year

. provide the opportunity to orally present design solutions to your client, faculty and peers

. provide another opportunity to develop skills for working on a design team

Boston, Massachusetts

9 weeks

. provide the opportunity to experience the process of designing a multi-story building complex in an urban context.


Concept: The main concept behind this project was the library as an information hub for the city. There is a glassy information ribbon that flows through the building inside and out. The main part of the library does not begin until the second floor, leaving the first floor completely open and inviting to the public.

Concept: The overall concept was derived from Oklahoma’s history and the land itself. The prairie grass roof was used to relate to the open prairie that has historically been representative of Oklahoma. The wood-slat entry cube was influenced from old houses found in the open countryside. The final composition combines the history of Oklahoma and the town of Guthrie with the future and all the possibilities it holds.

Spring 5th Year Oklahoma State University

The Parachute Pavilion: an Open Design Competition for Coney Island invited innovative design proposals from designers worldwide.

Brooklyn, New York

7 weeks

The Parachute Pavilion

Project Statement: Emerging from the current inadequate boardwalk, the pavilion focuses the attention of the pedestrians towards the parachute jump. The plaza of the pavilion allows and encourages movement directly in front of the parachute jump, setting up the opportunity for people-watching and interaction. The new flow through the site creates a stronger connection to the boardwalk from the city, subway and Surf Avenue. With the use of modern building technologies and forms, the pavilion becomes a symbol of the future possibilities of rebirth in Coney Island.


final presentation boards


Monza Grandstand

Project Goals: . to study architecture as a cultural phenomenon and how cultural geography affects its relationship with the users and the environment . to study complex architectural circulation systems, both horizontal and vertical . to study the human behavior as people interact with the designed environment

5 weeks

. to further develop new problem solving techniques . to further develop new graphic communication techniques

ACSA/AISC Design Competition

ACSA/AISC Student Union Design Competition Steel Monocoque Construction The site Chosen is a university extension campus serving 1,500 - 2,000 students located in a Midwest city of almost 500,000 people. This campus’ growth is projected to reach 20,000 students by the year 2020.

6 weeks

Making use of the existing site contours, the proposed student union provides a sense of a naturally fluid movement serving the movement of the pedestrian across the site. The proposed Student Union is positioned higher on the slope, embraces the slope, and then turns towards the downtown skyline for a stong visual connection back to the city.

This city has a strong connection with the industry of constructing airplanes. The form and structural concepts of this Union evolved from the steel construction system used to enclose the airplane fuselage. The long linear spaces are enclosed in glass and then shaded from the direct sun with stainless steel folded plates. This system allows natural light to be filtered into the entire facility.


Bachelor of Architecture Portfolio 2 weeks Spring 5th Year Oklahoma State University

Portfolio with Box Each project/subject had a folder with individual pages of images and information. As this portfolio was hand-made there is only one copy that was taken to job interviews. In a situation where there were multiple people in the interview this idea worked really well and the folders could be passed around and spread out on the table.

Tulsa Jazz Hall of Fame 17 weeks Oklahoma State University

Spring 4th Year

The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame wants to be a strong community focused building, providing a positive step towards revitalization and encouraging activities in the area. The overall concept is to give the building a character all its own. A character that expresses the jazz music that the buildings holds.

Tulsa, Oklahoma

Project Statement: Tulsa, Oklahoma has a strong history of jazz musicians and the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame honor’s such musicians and provides educational opportunities for the youth through their music arts programs. The Jazz Hall of Fame serves as a leader for positive community growth within the Historic Greenwood District of North Tulsa, an area that has its own strong history and need for revitalization. The Greenwood District used to be known as the Black Wall Street until the interstate completely cut this area in half. This area is also known for one of the worst race riots in history.

I am also a strong believer in using one’s hands to create and design. Often people have the ability to design and think, but little to no skill in actually creating. I enjoy adding that extra touch to all of my projects, spending just a little more time to make them one of a kind.

Art Minor: Drawing & Oil Painting

Art Minor: Art has been a strong influence in my life as long as I can remember. I find that I am a very visual thinker and get inspired from everyday sights and experiences.

Life Drawing Oil Painting Sculpture Jewelry & Metals Welding


Jewelry & Metals: Our final project in this class was to create a “box� or vessel. The vessel lightly floats in the nest of brass rods springing from the birch log. While it was a jewelry and metals class, I truly enjoy combining other materials together. The vessel itself started as a block of basswood and was slowly formed into an egg that was then hollowed out. The birch log came from my grandpa’s farm and serves as the base and starting point for the entire piece. The brass has the ability to compliment the natural colors of the woods.

Sculpture: The final project for sculpture class was to create a pedestal for our stone sculpture. The process sketches below show the evolution of the design. The final idea was inspired by the stone sculpture , but also has it’s own identity.

Oklahoma State University

2004

The final pedestal was constructed with segments of layered plywood. As each layer was slightly different, a computer model was used to extract templates for each piece. The total project stands 3’-6” tall.

CalPERS Rug Designs Sacramento, California

Project Description: These custom rugs were designed for the new CalPERS Headquarters in Sacramento, California. Initial sketches and paper collages were translated into drawings for fabrication. Coordination with several carpet consultants provided information about the process and secured price quotes for the client. There are a total of six completely individual rugs throughout the complex. The designs were inspired by the Sacramento Valley as seen from above .

Irvine, California 2006-2008

I was involved in the initial concept phase and then lead the project through master planning and schematic design.

The key feature of the site is a large 2.2 acre central green open space that will provide a unique pedestrian experience with such outdoor amenities as outdoor meeting spaces, food and beverage facilities, dining terraces, a putting green, and an outdoor event tent. The buildings have all been rotated to better reduce solar heat gain on the east and west facades.
