Project Architect


I joined ShelterBelt in May of 2017, bringing with me over 11 years of broad architectural experience on a multitude of project types and sizes. I was born and raised in Indiana, where I attended Ball State University, earning B.Arch. and B.S. in Environmental Design degrees in 2006. In 2015, I completed my architectural registration exams, the final step to achieving my childhood dream of being an architect. My personal design ethos, commitment to living sustainably, environmental stewardship, and focus on seeking innovative ways to connect people and places, compliments the philosophy and goals of ShelterBelt Design. I am passionate about making ecological, economical, and responsible additions to the built environment. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2013, I spent several years renovating and upgrading my 1930s bungalow, a process that allowed me to gain valuable hands-on construction experience, and greatly enhance my architectural detailing skills and knowledge base. I am highly detail oriented, and am excited to bring my aesthetic eye, detailing acumen, 3-D modeling capabilities, extensive construction document experience, and passion for design to ShelterBelt. I relish to the opportunity to work with ShelterBelt Design, continue to evolve my architectural career, and collaborate to bridge the built environment with the natural.
