About me I am an architectural designer graduated from Morgan State University, with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and Environmental Design (BSAED) located in Baltimore, Maryland. During my last year in university, my studies were concentrated around mixed-use projects and education design. This allowed me to be exposed to real world issues such as zoning requirements and limitations, budgets, and social economic restrains. After graduation, I decided to continue education design work. I moved to South Carolina where I was an intern architect under the direction of seasoned architects. I moved back to Washington, DC / Baltimore area where I have been practicing residential design for the last several years. About my personal interests, I am passionate about sports, history and international architecture. I believe it is vital to humans to keep challenging themselves for growth and self improvement.

Addition / Renovation Winter 2018 AAI Construction This addition/renovation project is located in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC. A 1920’s row home revived into three, high end luxurious and contemporary condominiums. The goal of renovating the existing structure is achieved seemlessly, all the while adding more than thirty feet to the rear. Although redesigned, the updated facade connects to its surroundings by keeping the traditional influence of the facades of the neighborhood with an updated contemporary twist. The attention to the floor plan layouts was crucial to maximize the usable space in such a limited and narrow Washington, DC row home.

Modernizing While Connecting The impetus of the design was to connect the existing conditions to the proposed addition and its surrounding environment. A concept that was kept at the forefront of the design process was to maximize the usage of the interior and exterior spaces. This was done by designing floor to ceiling windows. Skylights were also incorporated in the design to further this connection.

New Construction Summer 2019 AAI Construction A residential design located in the surrounding suburbs of Washington, DC. A modern interpretation of a farmhouse with an inspiration of craftsman details and architecture. Deigned with an open floor plan, a south facing facade allows for daily sun exposure. A wrap around porch was incorporated to give the feel of a traditional farmhouse. To connect to the surrounding architecture, details were meticulously designed and thought out, such as the flare-outs, and embellished eaves, among other design choices. A detached garage was designed to sit at the rear of the property to keep the traditional farmhouse feel.

The Process Managing the schedule was crucial in the completion of this project. Along with the development of the design, which was done with meticulous attention to detail, the building of the proposed design needed to be done with attention to detail. Every step of the construction from concrete pouring, to framing, to finished details, were managed and inspected to ensure a beautiful overall residential building.

Framed Learning Education Design

Winter 2017 M & W LLC Architects The ideas that inspired Framed Learning, are those that allowed the building to become part of the community and respond to the site. By altering roadways, it creates a presence on both roads that connect to the community just northwest of the site. A sense of arrival was important to the proposal as the existing building does not have a strong sense of arrival. Framing that entrance, allows for a multi-use front space. The cafe spills out onto a gated front arrival space where students can eat and enjoy. Natural light was a driving force behind the Framed Learning.
