I'm a visiting critic in Architecture for the Rhode Island School of Design & on the Leadership Team for RISD | DESINE-Lab.  I was also one of the four founding members & designer for MoveTogether PVD. I am also a Feature Artist at Unique Board.

I grew up overseas in exactly the number of countries I can count on both hands.  No more, no less.  I never had any training in art or design until falling into it in college.  Years later, I ended up as trained landscape architect.  Never quite feeling like I fit into the traditional role of landscape architecture, I worked to figured out a way to spin the skills I learned during graduate school at the Rhode Island School of Design into architecture (built), interior architecture, styling, fashion design, installation art & graphic & web design.  I have been lucky enough to work for Anthropologie as a Display Coordinator, designing, fabricating, & installing their windows & displays and though I personally have a minimal aesthetic, the years I spent at Anthro has heavily influenced my work.
