about me.jpg


My work as an architectural designer, artist, and teacher. I am a formally trained architect working in the field full-time as both an artist and designer while attending Pratt Institute for a second Master's degree in Architecture. I have practiced full-time for five years and continue to practice part-time throughout my education. My personal research and art practices focus on the details of design, intent, and execution of historic architectural and design methodologies that impact cultural needs and gender performances. My designs challenge normative comforts and performances while revealing a new trans-embodied approach to the practice. I maintain an active role in educating, leading, and creating through my art, podcast, and academic engagement. I aim to bring the queer and trans discourses into the world of design and architecture.
