I love making images and telling stories.
From mobile games to comics, from a travel fellowship to 3D physics simulations, I am drawn to work that is deeply poetic yet practical.
For the last 4 years, I’ve been building 3D worlds and images within the architectural industry. I’m fascinated by the interplay between the technologically constructed image and physical reality, and the potential of fiction to examine the ethical and critical realities of society.
Awards & Education
My formal training in architecture has instilled in me the ability to design at multiple scales, the love of an iterative and rigorous design process, and the ability to communicate ideas clearly and persuasively.
It is with gratitude and humility that these projects and pursuits have received awards after being completed, or grants to facilitate their creation.
