Employment History:
I bartended through undergraduate and graduate school. While in graduate school, I got an internship with D2C architects. I then joined Larson Incitti Architects before ending up here at The Abo Group.

When I’m not working, I enjoy:

As a Colorado native, I enjoy almost anything outdoors. I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and shooting. I try to skateboard every day. I also enjoy watching tv with my wife, Emily, and our dog, Strelka.

Favorite places in Colorado:
Either Frisco or Nederland. They are both amazing places.

Favorite examples of architecture:
Brutalist architecture is my favorite kind of architecture. The unique forms that can be achieved through the use of concrete has always fascinated me. I see beauty in the utilitarian use of concrete. One of my favorite examples of brutalist architecture is located right here in Colorado at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. However, I find it particularly intriguing when sustainability can be incorporated into brutalist architecture.
