Bio

I am an architectural intern at a medium-sized firm in Oklahoma City. I graduated from Oklahoma State University in May of 2010 with a Bachelor of Architecture with Honors. I fell in love with architecture after completing a two-week summer program after my junior year of high school, but it wasn't until my fourth-year in college that architecture became "real." As I was introduced to project management, phasing, budgets, site constraints, and client expectations, I began to realize that designing buildings is only a small fraction of this obsession we call architecture.

My summer internship solidified my love for the practice of architecture. I began to see that architecture and design are a way of business, and that what we are taught in school only goes so far. After completing the two management courses and one real-estate development course offered by the School of Architecture, I sought
opportunities in the Business School. I realized I wanted to re-design the business of architecture.
