Project Architect

Two things continue to stand out from growing up in a small town in northwest Pennsylvania. One is a keen awareness of the interconnectedness of our resources, built and natural. And the second is that people, and their talents, are our greatest resources. My hometown community is a remarkable one and was a great teacher of some valuable lessons. Its prosperity grew out of the ingenuity, grit, and determination of many unique characters. The populace collectively embodies a spirit of innovation while embracing seasoned and practical traditions. It’s a place where community and accountability are deeply intertwined. The landscape shows scars from years of extractive industries’ operations but is also blessed with wild and beautiful forest, stream, and mountain habitats.

These synergies and contradictions, both environmental and cultural, inspired me from an early age to pursue a future in architecture – to use this profession as a tool to enhance human community, but not at the cost of natural resources. These lessons in the true costs of resource use, and the sweet pay off of innovation and exploration push me to continue exploring, to teach what I’ve learned, and to never stop asking questions as a student myself.
