I grew up in North Carolina between the beach and the mountains and
played soccer till college. I went to school for architecture in
Raleigh, NC at the College of Design / NC State. Moved to Texas
after graduating and worked for an architecture firm in San Antonio
and then moved to Austin and got into construction management /
built my first project (a modern thai restaurant).
Just moved to Seattle to continue building.. and looking to meet
new friends to explore the city along the way.
A few things I enjoy are traveling, riding bikes, hiking, camping,
sketchbooks, live music, furniture, triathlons, running,
adventures, playing guitar poorly, my straw cowboy hat,
architecture, design, and soccer.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a project engineer for a construction firm that specializes in
high-end, well crafted / detailed residential projects. I have
background / degree in architecture.
I’m really good at
having a good time with friends and family.
The first things people usually notice about me
whether it was the stress from architecture school or hereditary, I
do have quite a bit of gray hair, my response is it's better than
