Architect & Artist 
New Orleans, LA 

I seek to uncover hidden stories in strange sites and give measure to landscapes through a collaborative practice focused on interactive installations and printmaking.

Since 2010, I have been a partner with Andy Sternad in Shallow Studio, an art and architecture practice.

As an architect & urban designer, I engage fundamental questions of what it means to dwell – and build - on New Orleans’ unstable ground. My professional work with Waggonner & Ball Architecture & Environment is focused on designing buildings and environments for places facing the effects of climate change.
