Teaching sustainable architecture and passive design strategies. Interested in educating and mentoring the future creators of tomorrow on passive design and its influences.

Methodology

My teaching method is running a 1:1 hands-on design studio to students in college and high school. Here we explore the basics and fundamentals of architectural construction and building assemblies and how they related to sustainable homes. We use a modeling system called ARCKIT to physically explore our ideas in real time.

Background

I am a professional student designer/architect and founder of Snowdrop, a hyper efficient housing firm. I have been giving lessons for two years now and have taught 10+ students.]

I am dedicated to creating housing that enables communities to thrive without external intervention, promoting an engaging and productive lifestyle. In my mind, if it doesn't make a dramatic difference, I'll find something else to do.

Over the years, I have worked as a library technician, an animal rehabilitation assistant, an orthopedic surgeon’s shadow, a bio-engineering intern, a drafting aid, an audio-visual technician, a cinematographer, an ARCKIT/Microsoft ambassador, and a KaTO/National Institutes of Health designer.

Throughout all these experiences, my journey has been filled with inspirational mentors and the idea that “everyone is a teacher.” To inspire and impact people’s lives gives me tremendous joy. Working together with others while also adopting leadership positions has been a powerful trait of mine that I hope to be able to pass on to others. To be a mentor and teach through inspiration is the very least I would like to be known for.
