A PORTFOLIO OF DESIGN
The effects and emotions of architecture can be felt everyday, in any enviornment. As designers, we can sculpt the feelings expressed through our designs. Starting from the ground up, every move, every brush stroke can be felt through the occupants experience. In my quest for designing the future, I hope my buildings, my creations can help improve the lives of others as well as the enviornment. Creating a structure that fits with the land, the surrounding built enviornment, and the clients needs will ensure for the present and future a structure that will sustain the life within the walls and beyond. Through my education at the University of Oregon as well as my travels across the world, I have witnessed the importance of architecture, and I have witnessed its effects on the world. By integrating elegance with sustainable technologies and the human context, I hope to better the lives and environment of the world through my designs.

COLABORATE An emerging interest in researching Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), combining the sciences of chemistry and biology with architecture, drove a need for a dedicated building as a part of the OHSU research campus, in collaboration with other universities in Oregon. This 30,000 sf building houses four wet labs and three dry labs, along with multiple classrooms and office spaces with gorgeous views across the Willamette River and Mt. Hood in the distance. If built, this would be the second building to perform at net-zero energy while housing four energy intensive wet labs for biology and chemistry. Through an innovative ventilation strategy and passive heating and cooling, the loads were able to be reduced enough to perform at net-zero energy with added PV panels. 87% of the time, daylight levels are adequate to not need added electric lighting. Because of the proximity to the Willamette River, rain water catchment and retention is very important in an effort to restore the health and population of the Pacific Salmon.

OREGON ROWING CENTER The Bridged Boathouse is an intersection of connections. The three largest club crew teams from the Eugene metropolitan area are coming under one roof for the first time. The Boathouse brings together the community with the crew teams in multiple, multipurpose rooms throughout the facility. Combining elegance with sustainability, this structure maximizes daylight to reduce energy costs, rain water catchment to reduce water consumption, and harvestâ€™s solar energy, connecting the users with the natural environment.

FURNITURE DESIGN A BENCH FOR MOURNING Made entirely out of white oak, this custom designed bench was constructed for Hope Abbey. By ebonizing the monolithic leg, a metaphor is formed, speaking to the light (seat) going through darkness (monolithic leg), and coming out the other side, just like the mourning process. This process can be a long journey but just know everything will be okay eventually and this bench was constructed to aid in the morning process and serve as a reminder that everything will be okay.

FACADE STUDY + SITE DESIGN In my time working with David Jones and Lynn West at AWJ Architecture during the summer of 2015, I drafted different variations on the design of a commercial building located in downtown Eugene, Oregon. The building’s design was formed with the site’s unique constraints as well as the client’s ideas. With sustainability in mind, the building was designed with PV panels and low flow plumbing fixtures in mind. The majority of my time at AWJ was spent developing the facades and site for the project, including all four elevations, a section and site plan.
