INTRODUCTION Miami, FL | Brunswick, ME | Eugene, OR Ever y stor y begins with a place . The places I’ve lived have c o n s t r u c t e d m y v a l u e s , u n d e r s t a n d i n g o f b e a u t y, a n d n o t i o n of home . In the following pages, I offer projects that weave together the stories of the places that they inhabit, each one unfolding through inquir y and exploration to understand how to embed space with meaning, beauty and univer sal value. With each proposal, my sense of place expands and evolves through investigations of forms, color s, textures, and approach. Through this por tfolio, I celebrate my best stories.

THESIS | LOW C ARBON - HIGH DESIGN Focusing on beauty and ethical function, my thesis studio is a b o u t e n v i r o n m e n t a l p e r f o r m a n c e a n d t h e s e a r c h f o r b e a u t y. By editing experience to reveal a par ticular phenomena, we can reframe our experience of the environment to reinterpret o u r r e l a t i o n s h i p w i t h n a t u r e i n a m e a n i n g f u l w a y. B y p r o p o s i n g a museum as a vessel to explore innovative uses for low carbon materials, our project captures the richness of contradictions in

Breaking Down the Mass

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Datacenter & Spirits Distillery Prineville, OR

Site Plan & Density Of Invasive Juniper

Data can be viewed as the lowest level of abstraction from which information and then knowledge is derived. Through a process of distillation, data begins to aggregate and a variety of conclusions can be made through multiple iterations of reassembling the same set of data.In a distillery, disparate ingredients are processed and culled and the end product provides an undistinguished base for further refinement and specification.

Excess Ambient Heat

From the timber industry to Les Schwab Tire Headquarters, Prineville has experienced its fair share of economic dependencies. Currently, Prineville has been the location for energy intensive data centers due to its dry and arid climate. Looking to be proactive and not reactive, the city of Prineville is looking to diversify in multiple directions, including increased recreation based activities, restoring the wetlands to revive the steelhead population, and potentially building a sports facility for neighboring towns.

Inactive Spaces

Barrier Between Community

The NOAA Datacenter and Distillery aims to help maintain ecological diversity within Prineville, support the local economy by providing a wide range of career opportunities and increase tourism.
