I am a Belgian-born, Midwest-raised, designer and creator living and working in New York City. I can’t think of a better place to call home. I am passionate and fastidious — I give a damn by default. I enjoy film photography and ocean sailing.
I’ve been hooked on architecture since I was old enough to pick up a pencil and trace floor plans from a home catalogue.
I hold two Master’s degrees from the University of Minnesota, one in Architecture and one in Sustainable Design. In 2011 I was nominated by Dean Tom Fisher to give a TEDxUMN Talk about my thesis projects. You can watch it here. I worked professionally in Minneapolis, MN for several years gaining experience with residential and commercial projects.
Shortly after arriving in New York City I began working for an award-winning architectural firm designing the USA pavilion for the 2015 Milan EXPO - A fast track project collaborating with nearly every discipline imaginable from structural engineering and exhibition design to crowd control and vertical farming.
