of my past work.
Even today Kingdom County is an out-of-the-way and little-known fragment of a much earlier rural America. Forty years ago, when I was a boy growing up there on my grandparents farm, it was still something of a true frontier.

Plastic Bag Illustration. 2008.
As the wick flared up, the strangest room I had ever laid eyes on came into view. Except for a small bed hardly larger than a child's trundle bed, and the table with the lamp, it was a perfect museum of a room, full of the most atonishing items. "Egypt. Tut," my grandmother said solemnly.
Without a moment's hesitation I joined the gang of boys running behind the truck as it coughed and bounced its way across the racetrack toward the infield in front of the grandstand. Through the slats I caught a glimpse of something gray and enormous. As the battered vehicle jolted and rocked along with its enormous weight, I was breathless with anticipation.
Plastic Bag Light Study. 2008.

Floor Plan Detail.
One Week VingetteFall 2008
Taking inspiration from architects that have come before us, this project was a quick sketch of how to incorporate form,
styles, and motivations from three seperate masters into one new unique and coherent building.
Material Studies2005 - 2008
Experimentation within the design process was an integral part of my architecutre education. These are two seperate studies
showing how an everyday object can be transformed into something entirely new. These transformation then inform the
design process to go in directions unimagined.
