Ever since the day I put together that first LEGO tower kit, buildings have been my passion. I love exploring neighborhoods and envisioning new realities for under utilized or derelict spaces. Evenmore so, I am thrilled when these opportunities become realities!

I’ve spent nearly ten years studying architecture, ecological design, and sustainable real estate development. Through my studies I have earned a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon and an M.B.A. from Marylhurst University. I have experience working for both Fortune 500 companies as well as small boutique design firms. While the bulk of my design work revolves around ideas of reinvigorating underutilized spaces and overlooked communities, my development efforts focus on creating competitive financial opportunities guided by principles of sustainability.

My career has led me all over the world, but it was the landscape, vibrant culture, emerging tech scene and incredible urban nooks that brought me back to Portland. When I’m not milling through property and business data, tinkering on my computer or surfing through architecture magazines, I enjoy adventures in the outdoors, rooting for a few locals teams and sampling Portland’s excellent micro-brew scene.
