Throughout my career, I have sought opportunities that create positive impact and serve a larger purpose within their respective communities---a pursuit central to my philosophy on architecture. I see the practice of architecture (and design in general) as a privilege, having the opportunity to not only better our surrounding environment/buildings/spaces, but also the quality of life for our neighbors for whom they are designed.

After earning my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Ball State University in 2009, I have worked in a variety of markets including practice at national award-winning architectural firms in Chicago and San Antonio. Since then, I returned to my native state of Michigan and have been practicing locally since my homecoming in the fall of 2016. I have a diverse background of professional experience, having spent time in general contracting, real estate, and design editorial as a contributor for ArchDaily and Design Bureau magazines. While untraditional, I value my diverse career path as an asset and routinely leverage my broad range of experience to complement my true passion, the practice of architecture proper.

On a personal note, I am a resident of Spring Lake, enjoys international travel, and spends my free time engaging in outdoor activities with his wife and two children.
