Originally from Montana, I grew up in an environment where hard work, responsibility, and honest morals were instilled at a very young age and remain the basis for my work ethic today. Throughout my collegiate studies as well as working professionally, I have learned that architecture can provide a deeper sense of value beyond contemporary aesthetics and design. This value is derived when social, economic, and environmental dynamics are considered, utilized, and integrated into the design process. By designing with these dynamics in mind, architecture becomes responsive, giving back to the context in which it resides.
Since joining SMA, I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects varying in size and scope. I am able to provide a helping hand where ever it is needed and it has resulted in many new experiences and never a dull moment. I am thankful to be a part of a knowledgeable and passionate team that tackles any design challenge head on while also taking the time to educate young professionals like myself. Moving forward, I am excited to take on new challenges and roles and very excited to see where my future with SMA takes me.
Like many in the office, I love to take advantage of the great outdoors that Montana has to offer. Given the season, you may find me hunting, fishing, hiking, camping and snowboarding. I also enjoy traveling and I am always inspired by visiting new places and learning from different cultures.
