For me, design is the only constant in life. From a very early age, I developed an affinity for art and design that carried me to where I am now
As a child, I didn't quite "play" with my toys, I arranged them. Sometimes this was just by color, other times I designed full-fledged Barbie weddings complete with the wedding dress.
Growing up in Cincinnati I was exposed to some lovely residential and public architecture. I was inspired by the meticulous landscaping of my neighbors and the vibrant colors of their Victorian-style homes.
Throughout high school, I spent a vast majority of my free time drawing and painting. It was then that my art teacher strongly suggested I pursue the applied arts as a career.
Since I've enrolled in Miami University's architecture program, I've had the opportunity to apply my artistic skills to a field I truly love.

Clifton Young Adult Library offers youths of the Clifton area a place to study and express themselves. The library houses a mural in the atrium for Artworks to practice with students on. The west facade features a louvre system that allows glimpses from the outside of the dramatic mural wall

Movable Break Space
The shelter rests on the Institute for Food farm, and serves as a break space for farm staff and Miami University students. The shelter features swinging panels to control the solar gain of the unconditioned space during the warmer months.
