an ever adapting tool in the arsenal of any designer, capturing the energy of a place quickly is a passion of mine. I look forward to a lifetime of improving and perfecting that skill both on and off the clock. face to face, over the phone, and email encounters all feel comfortable and natural to me, I am able to feel at home even presenting in front of large groups or crowds. working with teams and having the ability to step outside of my own vision to accepts the perspective of others for a more complete whole is something I continually strive for during two years as a religious volunteer in northeast england, I studied the mandarin chinese language, and have continued to study ever since. I am proficient in the spoken, and still learning the written language

salt lake community college // South City campus of Salt Lake Community College sits on State Street just North of South Salt Lake City. Working with South Salt Lake City planners, I along with a team of other students re-envisioned this campus not only as a gateway and anchor for South Salt Lake, but also as a nucleus of community life. Design was collaborative, all images presented are my own work.

community and school to create vibrancy, by bringing the the “big idea” connect community onto campus, and the students into the community.
lack of student life
ACTIVITY SE NTER CE
The South City campus is well equipped to handle student’s educational needs, but there is nothing keeping students in the community to “bring it in.”
need: enticing amenities too keep students around

West of State Street, the People’s Freeway community is separated from campus by state street, and missing key community elements. There is also a lack of diversity in businesses.

separation from the college
need: public space within the college campus to help connect the two NITY AN C MU
need: bridging State Street to access the life of the college campus
With a strong community council, and active residents, the Liberty Wells neighborhood surrounding the South City campus for the most part thriving. A connection between Liberty Wells and the college would benefit both parties.
gateway to south salt lake
Few people know where the border between Salt Lake City and South Salt Lake lies. This site is positioned perfectly to provide a visual cue for south bound travelers that you are entering a new city and district. need: visual gateway to South Salt Lake

current cycling network
cycle logan // The small city of Logan, Utah has the scale and potential to be an easily bike-able community. Experience cycling Loganâ€™s streets has told me that it still has a long ways to go. This analysis explores the barriers to safe and comfortable cycling, and what impact different solutions will have on the problem. All analysis, mapping and renderings are my own work.

AREAS OF INTERVENTION slope large hills and high amounts of slope discourage cyclists. Amenities need to be placed closer to residents on the benches, or housing centers relocated.
traffic High vehicular traffic leaves cyclists feeling vulnerable and easily persuades beginning or potential cyclists to leave the bike in the garage. Bike lanes, and rerouting help with this problem.
speed Vehicles passing a pedal bike at high speed are enough to get even more experienced cyclists heart beating a little faster. Even if traffic is light, the speed alone will discourage cyclists. Protected bike lanes help all users stay safe.

taggart student center // As a part of the Deanâ€™s Prize competition, a new student center at Utah State University was designed and analyzed. The final design aimed to â€œencircle student lifeâ€? on campus, enable free movement to and from the student center, and provide spaces and elements that will help students relax and de-stress. Design and all renderings shown are my own personal work.

loft six four internship // Ever Evolving. Thatâ€™s the motto of loft six four. I was fortunate to be able to spend a summer working with a team that is always pushing the limits of design. Somewhere between the planting and irrigation plans, sketchup model studies, sheet set deadline nights, golden design epiphanies, and lunchtime sketch sessions the pieces all started to fall into place. I started to get really get excited for the design career ahead of me. All projects with the exception of the monument signage were designed by Brandon Reed of Loft Six Four, all images are my own work.
