I am a Registered Architect in the states of Wisconsin and Florida, USA.  I hold three degrees including a M.Arch. from UW-Milwaukee, 2016.  Supplementing my master’s degree, I hold graduate certificates in Preservation Studies and Ecological Design.

 

Currently I work for GROTH Design Group in Cedarburg, WI.  There I contribute to the team working on many regional projects across Wisconsin and the Midwest.  Those projects range from corporate buildings to church renovations, school projects and private condominium developments.  I also have over four years of cross-discipline experience at a multi-national specialty engineering firm producing RFP Drawings and assisting project engineers.  Those engineering projects included very high-end structural glass walls, glass fin structures, expressive structurally complex skylights, and exotic canopies for many well known architectural clients—all utilizing either point supported, edge clamped, cable supported, or captured glazing systems.  Fresh out of college, I worked for an architecture firm that specialized in medical office buildings, dialysis facilities, schools, and mixed-use commercial structures.  I also have had experience operating laser cutters and supervising the woodshop for the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at UW-Milwaukee.  Recreationally I have undertaken design competitions in architecture and various private commissions.

I am very interested in old buildings and ecological stewardship, specifically pertaining to grain elevators.  I selected a large grain elevator complex for my graduate thesis project and rehabilitated it into a Greek Orthodox monastery.  My free time consists of photographing the Wisconsin countryside in my 94’ Jeep Wrangler-YJ or working on projects in the garage.
