Bio

I'm a school psychologist and a Tucson, Arizona native with a passion for the arts, architecture, psychology, and education. I'm a firm advocate of empiricism and evidence-based decision making; however it doesn't take empirical evidence to see that the design of most public school facilities is uninspiring, unimaginative, and probably downright ineffective. I aspire to cement myself in a knowledge base consisting of research methodology, developmental psychology, education, and neuroscience. Leveraging off of this foundation, I plan to apply my skills in research interpretation and analysis to bring research-driven principles to the architecture and design fields, with specific applications to the design of learning environments and K-12 school facilities. Working alongside architects, facilities planners, and school administrators, it is my hope that the best interests of the rising generation will become a shared priority that makes clear the need for evidence-based school design.
