Born and raised in Maine, my upbringing includes a healthy dose of traditional craftsmanship and regional attitudes towards land cultivation and place-making. This background has helped frame my interest in how others shape their environments and imparted a sense of wonder for tools, materials and the ritual(s) of making.

Much of my research explores the role of the hand/body in transforming and defining cultural geographies and built environments. In conjunction with this, I’ve maintained a deep commitment to design pedagogy – immersing myself in all levels of instruction, from introductory summer design camps for high school students to undergraduate design studios where intense making meets critical thinking, reflection and design speculation.
