I am ... m.arch 2013 rhode island school of design

...exploring, circling in more and more to what I find the most joy in doing. this means pulling in cultural understanding and humanity into my work. understanding what brings me delight or awakens my sense evoking what i want the spaces i create to do. ...seeking to always be a student, and hoping someday to be a teacher. teaching + learning as a cyclical process in which one can continually return to and refine ideas that make my heart hum. ...wishing to see my spatial dreams become a reality in the built environment. the wish of any architect to allow the dreams and intangible strings which pull at our minds to manifest themselves as built: a place where others can feel how you felt. ...interested in dwelling as a way of imagining all architecture- dwelling as a means of achieving a space that delights the senses, engaging the soul and memory, actively involving and empowering the user in his environment.

...seeking to understand: : the ways in which art and architecture resonate with our emotional senses. Architecture can heighten our emotional and physical awareness of our inner and outer environments. : the way geometries and the concrete logic of mathematics can inform my work. Intrigued by patterns and logic based systems which allow our minds to make sense of spaces. :the power of geometry in storytelling. And I believe that narrative in architecture is very powerful.
