  • As a practicing and licensed architect in the state of Colorado, my expertise lies in the practical application of architectural theory and technical methods. The courses I teach at CU are experience-based.


courses taught

  • ARCH 2115 - Architecture Materials and Methods
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
    An introduction to both standard and innovative building materials this course exposes students to the elements and processes used to in constructing buildings. Through lecture, technical drawing, material research and exposure to practicing professionals, students build a foundation of knowledge necessary to approach the specification and design of materials as well as to foster a curiosity in the innovative frontiers of assembly, aesthetics and sustainable life-cycle considerations. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 2100.
  • ARCH 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    Dealing with problems at an intermediate level of complexity this architecture studio emphasizes the interaction of form, programmatic use, human behavior and context in creating structure. Studio options may include a client-based community engaged project, real world applications, and/or result in a physical product. Students work across analog and digital platforms to produce high quality and portfolio-worthy work.
  • ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
  • ENVD 1020 - Studio 1: Introduction to Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    The second of four introductory studios introduces students to strategies and techniques of architectural design and communication in a hands-on studio environment. Students design a small-scale architectural project that responds to environmental, contextual and programmatic needs while developing the necessary skills for iterative design processes.
  • ENVD 1120 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2023
    Focusing on the languages of design, as well as on traditional and digital methods of visualizing architectural ideas and forms, this course builds on the skills learned in Studio 1 and begins incorporating the dynamic forces that shape our buildings.
  • ENVD 3115 - Introduction to Building Materials and Systems
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Surveys building methods, materials and assemblies from the designer's perspective. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 2120.
  • ENVD 3300 - Special Topics: Intermediate Design Lab
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Design lab exploring new and emerging themes in environmental design. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 4100 - Advanced Design Lab 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Design lab exploring new and emerging themes in design. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 4979 - Honors Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Working with an advisor, students prepare, complete, and defend an honors thesis project, either written or creative.
