Cranbrook Retreat - STUDY: SUMMER 2006
PROFESSOR RANDAL CORRAL

This paperless design studio focused on the exploration of form through model building. I explored the design of a reTREEt through a series of tree houses, towers, tree pods, and elevated boardwalks in the woods. Sited upon the quaint and vast campus of Cranbrook, I found the most appropriate location for the wellness retreat was among the canopies of the trees.

LightBox - STUDY: FALL 2004
PROFESSOR DENNIS MANN

Lightbox was a first year studio collaboration. Over ten weeks, our studio of 18 students explored the expression of music and emotion through light and space. The design project culminated with the three-week intensive design-build of Lightbox: an 8’ cube with an interior evocative of the emotion conveyed through Radiohead’s song Airbag. Elected by my studiomates, I oversaw the construction of Lightbox as project manager.

Portland's Pedestrian Place - FALL 2010
PROFESSOR GERRY GAST
University of Oregon
Collaboration with Dan Scofield

This urban design proposal takes a radical approach to the improvement of Portland’s waterfront by proposing a transformation of the Morrison Bridge into a pedestrian thoroughfare. This change allows the bridge to be a proper pedestrian gateway into a city that preaches to put the pedestrian first.

Pottery - 2006-PRESENT
INSTRUCTOR LOGAN
WANNAMAKER

As a hobby while living in Taos, I have learned to create on a potter’s wheel. Throwing is a different way to explore form, as well as a pleasant technique for relaxation. My favourite part of the pottery process is firing, and I have experimented with different firing techniques, including high-fire, raku, naked raku, pit fire, and saggar.

PowWow - POWWOW
2008

I enjoy snapping portraits because it is so dependent on timing. I often have to be sneaky, so the individual is not influenced by the camera. It is tough to get raw portraits, so the challenge of the art excites me. These photographs were taken during a powwow highlighting Native American dance traditions of New Mexico.
