Years of Experience:
One year and counting!
What’s your primary role at SAR+?
What brought you to architecture/interior design?
As a kid, I was always excited when we had art day at school, I knew there was something there when my art projects started turning out better than my brothers. In high school my mom encouraged (forced) me to take a drafting class, I reluctantly said yes, but as the semester when on I quickly fell in love with the architectural drafting content that was covered. I like to say that I get my right brain from my mother and left from my father, architecture merges these two halves in a brilliant cohesion that I love.
What projects are you currently working on at SAR+?
I am currently working on the Ironton Apartments located in the RiNo district of Denver. I have also been periodically shooting drone photos for various projects that need it as well!
Favorite building, place, or destination:
I will always remember my first visit to Chicago in college, we took an architectural boat tour down the Chicago River. This was one of the most awe-inspiring experiences and most influential trips of my architectural career. A for-sure rec if you ever get the chance to do it!
If you weren’t an Architect/Interior Designer/Planner, what would you be?
Professional spikeball player is definitely up there.
What’s your favorite memory at SAR+?
I was in a meeting around Halloween time, we were trying to figure out a design problem and in strolls Evel Knievel with a straight face ready to aid in the design solution.

Spotify wrapped says “white noise for sleeping” was my most listened to song in 2021, so we’ll go with that one.
