• Hello. I am an architect, writer and lover of design.

    By day, I work as a project architect at Northworks Architects + Planners in Chicago. I am responsible for the production of all phases of design; client and consultant presentations; and research of the newest technologies and materials to enhance the firm’s sustainable practices. I am LEED AP BD+C accredited, have served as a LEED Administrator, and successfully achieved LEED Platinum Certification for a new residence. I am a licensed architect in Illinois and a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

    By night, I write for Apartment Therapy, a nationally recognized and award-winning shelter website. Our mission is to help people make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community online.
