I am an architect of spaces, powerful conversation, and intentional experiences.

My passion is co-creating ecosystems of people, place, and possibility. I am devoted to designing tools, cultures, and spaces to cultivate a learning mindset and strategize change.

I am formally trained in architecture, ergonomics, and educational leadership. That means I spend most of my days thinking about learning environments.  School design has lead me to explore how people learn: from co-mentorship to lifelong curiosity. I help build organizational models and design spaces to support them. I strive to create graphics that makes information easier to understand.

I'm a registered architect in Oregon, researching user experience design in schools, productive nomads, and their co-working environments. My expertise lies in visioning, engagement strategy, and user-centered design, which are my current focus at Mahlum Architects.

You can find me at gatherings of:


What I Stand for:

I AM AN ADVOCATE ARCHITECT.
I promote equity, authenticity, and good work.  
I am fascinated by social research and will meet you where you are.

I AM CREATING A TRIBE.
I ebb and flow with the energy of my companions, ever learning from one another.
I engage in critiques as an offer of care: to be vulnerable together in communication.

I LIVE TANGIBLY.
I study different scales, direct and indirect forces, and put my faith in science. 
I strive to produce more than I consume.

I COLLABORATE THROUGH MOVEMENT.
I dance, row, and play out ideas with others through a jam.
I draw until I feel out a pattern or place or spirit.

I LEARN BY BEING UNCOMFORTABLE.
I seek out unique communities and their indescribable challenges.
I believe that if you’re not struggling, you’re not learning.

I AM A FUTURIST.
I am defiantly optimistic, and often in awe. 
I am excited by interdisciplinary teams and cross pollination.

I AM A PERSON OF COLOR. 
Enough said.
