STUDIO Buildings provide us with comfort & shelter. Architecture, on the other hand, accomplishes both of these tasks while celebrating the human condition and ultimately reminding us of who we are as a people.

DESIGN/BUILD Our profession started as the master builder. Over time, we have marginalized ourselves to drawing without knowing how to build. To secure our success and regain power, we must go back to authoring processes again.

WORK EXPERIENCE & ENTREPRENEURSHIP Designers will play critical roles in the success of our rebounding economy. In these changing times, it is incredibly important to take a comprehensive approach to design and diversify the services we provide. Over my time at KU, I have honed my design skills and pursued work in allied disciplines.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT I am an advocate of design for the public good. Whether it is through built interventions or its other manifestations, design has the power to improve our community. It is an incredibly satisfying feeling to devote much of my time outside of studio to giving back through what I enjoy doing most.

COMPETITIONS Much of how design work is obtained is by building an reputation through competition entries. I have had the opportunity to not only enter a handful of them, but collaborate with some amazing people along the way.

URBAN CATALYST | A VISION FOR NORTH OMAHA MIXED INCOME HOUSING | COMMUNITY CENTER | RESTAURANT | GALLERY & ARTIST RESIDENCES

community based art grew out of the sociopolitical forces that shape our urban corridors and made public space its gallery. Could an arts-based community be a catalyst for change in neglected urban areas?


The site for the proposed project is the northwest block at the intersection of 24th and Lake St. in North Omaha. This portion of the greater Omaha area suffers not only from segregation, but also partial economic stagnation ever since the civil rights movement. With the introduction of a mixed-use development that fuses housing with direct adjacencies with art-centered programming, it hopes to be

a catalyst development that ripples change throughout the community at large. Through this redevelopment, these new cultural buildings in the hearth of the community become, on a functional level assets for the community, and on a more spiritual level beacons of hope and aspirations and a reminder that the community has not been forgotten.

URBAN CATALYST | A VISION FOR KANSAS CITY KANSAS CITY, MO I GRADUATE STUDIO | EL DORADO ARCHITECTS

The great ideas of our time have occurred in the social interchange fostered by urban environments. It’s time to rebuild our urban cores.


EXPLORING URBAN DENSITY This urban vision for Kansas city explores a high density solution that incorporates a mixture of retail, restaurant, office, and residential. The project also explores a boutique hotel that plays host for the Westside, Crossroads, and

PAC communities in the immediate surroundings. Green space is a key focus, leveraging acoustic buffering strategies, innovative community space, and sustainable strategies.


A VISION FOR KANSAS CITY


Successful urban design is as much about the architecture as it is about the spaces it frames. Together, the interplay of solid and void become the stage for social interaction.

Design comes from asking tough questions -- it comes from trusting intuition and taking a stance on what we value.


DALLAS ARTS DISTRICT


DALLAS FASHION INSTITUTE

CONTEXTUAL RESPONSE The building takes advantage of views to the Nasher Sculpture Garden and the Meyerson Symphony Center, as well as the proposed park currently under construction to the north of the site. In the same manner that the Nasher Sculpture Garden uses a series of bays to establish a rhythm in its south facade, the prominent angled columns along the south of the DFI hope to achieve the same rigor and elegance. Finally, the smooth limestone of the Meyerson became the material choice to both ground the building as well as establish a dialogue with the surrounding buildings.


DALLAS FASHION INSTITUTE


The cantilevered museum space topping off the building acts as a deep shading structure that allows the program spaces below to have ample glass yet still be protected from the harsh Dallas sun. The water feature, combined with the southfacing operable windows act as an evaporative cooling system during the few hot-dry months

Gathering Spaces Greenspaces are located directly adjacent to the main programmatic spaces in order to facilitate various events ranging from streetside performances and public gatherings to more selective fashion runways shows upstairs.

Vertical Circulation Two fire stairs are located on the east and west ends of the building. A feature stair ascends along the south elevation and both grabs public attention off the street, and guides visitors with an enclosed mannequin display that wraps around the inner portion of the steps.

A gateway into a place can be more than a sculptural icon by responding to the needs of the community and enhancing its sense of pride through historical connections. As a home to many leaders of the civil rights movement, Atlanta served as a site for numerous key grassroots movements. The Village Walk Complex celebrates the historical significance of the city by denoting the intersection of the Joseph E. Lowery Blvd. and Lena St. with memorable remarks made by civil rights leaders embossed into the pavement. As visitors arrive on the site for the proposed historic walks, they gather in an ample, sunken plaza at the heart of the complex before departing on the various journeys.

Connecting the Washington Park neighborhood across Joseph E, Lowery blvd. is an elevated, two story volume. The space contains galleries, meeting spaces, and a resource center for the community. The space capitalizes on the heavy foot-traffic of the site and ultimately acts not only as a gallery space that celebrates the civil rights movement,

an ever-changing forum where the community can hear and be heard. but also

In order to bring natural light into the basement of the Lawrence Arts Center, a “pit� was dug and the existing glass facade extended down to meet the new grade. From the street, the top of trees peek the interest of pedestrians while inside the pit a subtle waterfall trickles down the retaining wall and adds both visual and aural enclosure to the larger sculpture garden to the north.

FLEXIBLE ARRANGEMENT The rentable studios on the ground floor of the proposed addition are 10’ X 15’ modules that can be rearranged to create bigger workspaces as needed.

The resulting voids of a particular arrangement become small gallery spaces that artists can use to display their work.

HERITAGE JOURNAL BHAKTAPUR DURBAR SQUARE I BHAKTAPUR, NEPAL I RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP I UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS

Culture is the social representation of our values and what ultimately defines us as a people. Working under the mentorship of Kapila Silva (PhD) at the University of Kansas, I have had the opportunity of documenting and digitally mapping the cultural practices of UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the world. Durbar Square, a large open plaza in the heart of Bhaktapur, Nepal, is one of such sites. It is nationally recognized for holding the palaces of the Malla and Shah kings who ruled over the city. Along with

these palaces, the square also surrounds quadrangles revealing an assortment of courtyards and temples. The Bisket Jatra, is a festival with much pomp and fanfare, celebrates the heritage of the city. The famous event is observed for eight nights and nine days and has been part of Bhaktapur’s tradition since the Lichchhivi era (c. 450-c. 750), according to historical records.

LG DESIGN THE FUTURE

CELLPHONE DESIGN

4TH PLACE I 2009 NATIONAL COMPETITION

Awarded 4th place out of 1100 entries in LG’s “Design The Future” competition.

The Phone of the Future

By placing the FLEX between the user and his/her focus, information is gathered and displayed in real-time on the phone’s stretchable screen. for example, looking at a restaurant through the view frame would display information such as the menu options and prices, and even allow the user to make reservations. The FLEX offers the unique experience of bringing a plethora of information to the fingertips of the user. Instead of traditionally searching for information, it is now readily available – realtime.

Durability

Through the application of heat, the shape memory alloy frame of the FLEX will “remember” and restore itself to its original shape if its ever dropped or bent. Likewise, the LED-like inlay of the screen, allows the display to stretch back and forth in accordance with the frame.

Customization

The FLEX’s multi-touch technology allows users to not only drag their favorite applications into view, but also scale the size of a particular application by simply stretching opposing corners of its window. Furthermore, the implementation of colormorph technology such as photonic crystals would allow the frame of the phone to change colors or display images.

Size

With the ability to stretch, the FLEX can be comfortably used for a variety of other applications that would benefit from an enlarged display area such as GPS navigation, media player, virtual notebook or other PDA–like uses. This added flexibility gives the FLEX the ability to become a rich, multimedia handheld without sacrificing the compactness of a cell phone.

LG CELLPHONE

The challenge was to research both current and emerging technologies and ideate the next big leap in mobile phones. In this regard, the FLEX combines two core technologies -- shape memory alloys and augmented reality -- to create a cell phone that enhances the perception of the user’s immediate surroundings by overlaying a virtual layer of interactive, contextdependent information.

BRANDING

UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS | SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING Design, regardless of its scale or manifestation, has the power to bring people together and make them feel part of something bigger.


Working within a Long-standing tradition. Each year, the KU School of Engineering hosts several events that let students of all ages explore the possibilities of engineering. One of these events, the Engineering Expo (held since 1911), is a free two-day, student-run event that lets visitors discover the fascinating fields of engineering and take part in amazing projects put together by KU engineering students. Held in conjunction with National Engineers Week, Expo takes place on the last Friday and Saturday in February at KU’s Engineering Complex.

ENGINEERING EXPO

Numerous hands-on displays and contests await the 1500 visitors as they venture through the complex. Over the course of my student life at KU, I have had the opportunity to collaborate with the School of Engineering’s Student Council and envision the branding efforts (postcards, posters and t-shirts) of 5 consecutive Expos. As a designer, it is incredibly satisfying to give back through what I enjoy doing, what’s even better is that through my involvement with Expo, I have done not only that, but fostered amazing friendships along the way.

Graphic design and branding design efforts work simultaneously with interior design development. i.d.entity Suite Salons, a newly established salon business in Olathe, Kansas wanted to create a unified image through the many facets of its brand. I worked closely with the client to establish the a direction for the interior finishes of the locale, and ultimately translate

the key brand elements to their business’s logo, website and other assorted printed materials. I collaborated with a local design company to fabricate a custom aluminium, back-lit sign to anchor the street presence of the business.
