I serve as a Corporate Director and Senior Architect for Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. (Kahn) – a role that has brought exciting challenges and incredible rewards. Since starting with the company in 2014, I’ve quickly risen through the ranks from Architectural Intern to serving on the Kahn Board of Directors. I am an inaugural member of the company’s Diversity + Inclusion Committee and a long-standing member of the Workflow Improvement Team. Most recently, I was recognized as a 2022 Notable LGBTQ in Business Leader by Crain’s Detroit – a recognition that I hope helps to increase visibility of LGBTQ individuals and highlight diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives within the AEC industry.

Over the last eight years at Kahn, I’ve helped to develop millions of square feet within the built environment, and through that process I’ve developed a strong understanding of the architectural process, a breadth of experience in various building typologies, and a keen interest in building enclosure sciences. Since receiving my license in 2017, I’ve helped to guide others within Kahn’s office through project development and encouraged licensure and membership within AIA. Additionally, through the experience I’ve gained during this tenure, I’ve developed strong relationships with building owners, engineers, construction managers, contractors, and fellow architects and designers.

I look forward to the opportunity to bring my experience, energy, and passion for the Detroit design community to serve AIA Detroit and its membership.
