I am an interdisciplinary designer and creative technologist who works across multiple scales in both natural and built environments. As a first year DDes at Harvard GSD, my research leverages digital fabrication, tunable material and applied ecology for the remediation of post-industrial landscapes. I’m a graduate of the Media Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I worked in the Mediated Matter group with Neri Oxman to produce bio-fabricated structures exhibited in MoMa, SFMoMA and the Cooper Hewitt. I received his Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University with a Goodwin Sands thesis prize and Eidlitz Fellowship. I have held teaching positions at UC Berkeley, Woodbury University and the Boston Architectural College. Additionally, I co-taught design-build studios at AHO during his Fulbright Fellowship in Oslo. Previously, I have worked for design firms such as Snøhetta in SF, Only If in NYC, and Miniwiz in Taipei as well as in creative roles at NASA JPL in LA, and OPT Industries in Cambridge.
