To me “connecting the dots” means….
Connecting people to the built environment, their communities, and nature.
When not at work you will find me…
Performing. Whether it is as a monster at Nashville Nightmare Haunted House, a professional mermaid at our local Landry’s Aquarium, a Duchess at the Renaissance Festival, your favorite princess at a kid’s birthday party, or a detective at a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater show, I am always finding ways to stay busy and have fun.
I bet you didn’t know______ about me
I love to travel! I have been to over 20 countries all around the globe. My next big adventure will be doing ecological restoration work in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia (a trip that has been postponed since 2020 due to the pandemic).
My favorite place in Nashville is…
My new house with my kittens, Artemis and Hades.
The reason I wanted to become an Architect/Designer was…
When I was growing up, my family in Mexico had little. My uncle worked his way from construction to electrical engineering to eventually founding his own Architecture/Engineering firm. His company went on to be very successful and was contracted by governments throughout the country to create affordable housing projects, community revitalization strategies, and lifechanging infrastructure such as aqueducts and stormwater management systems. I got to see firsthand how good design can improve communities and peoples’ lives.
