Growing up in Austin, Texas, the environment surrounding me always stressed to be as unique as you can be and never settle. Those fundamentals have stuck with me throughout my life, and I still keep them close to this day. When I moved to Wichita in high school, I was still trying to figure out what I wanted to do and my place in the world. After two years of general education at Wichita State, I realized that interior design had been a key part of my life for as long as I could remember. I thought back to when I was a kid and would come with my mom to pick out materials for our house. With a new passion to drive me, I enrolled in Kansas State University to learn everything I could about the world of interior design.

After three years in the interior design program, I can confidently say this is where I should be. Even when projects drive me into long nights, that passion remains. I figured out what kind of designer I wanted to be and what I wanted to contribute to the world. I joined 3ten Architecture, knowing that they were a firm that could give me the opportunities I needed to complete my goals.

I want to help my community realize the importance of intentional design. I want to create places that serve the human experience, enhancing the lives of those who use them. These ideals drew me to 3ten Architecture, and I’m looking forward to the experience I will gain here. “Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future” [Robert L.
