I was born in Minneapolis and spent my childhood between there and Chicago. Living in historically significant houses, my love of homes started at an early age. I developed a passion for spaces that invoke emotion, and it ultimately led me to Miami University, in Oxford, OH, where I studied architecture and real estate.
When I moved to California, I spent several years working in architecture on single family homes, as well as large scale projects for Cuningham Group and Walt Disney Imagineering. My background in design and construction gives me a strong appreciation for detail and well-designed spaces. It also gives me a knowledge base that few other realtors have.
I have been fortunate to have traveled to nearly every continent in the world; living in Australia, studying building practices in Ghana, designing resorts in South Korea, and traveling through France, Mexico, Canada, and Argentina. My cultural experience and appreciation are first hand.
I enjoy spending my free time:
- Horseback riding
- Playing golf and tennis
- Playing soccer with the San Francisco Spikes
I've always had a passion for capturing beautiful images that I come across in this world. I was the president of the photography club at Miami University, and since then I have continued to photograph my travels and day-to-day life.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Deciding to study architecture at Miami University was one of the best decisions I ever made. I learned to explore my creativity and problem solve in new ways. Then throughout my architecture career I was very fortunate to work on a wide variety of projects from private residences in California to mega-projects across the globe. I also had the amazing opportunity to work with Walt Disney Imagineering on the remodel of the Carthay Circle Theatre as well as the schematic design phase of the entire Cars Land development. This is a sample of some of my favorite design, rendering, drafting, and construction management projects.
