The Fellowship was an opportunity for me to explore our responsibilities and potential within the built environment. Through the fellowship I studied at the Ecosa Institute, became a LEED accredited professional and had the opportunity to attend remarkable workshops. In Australia I attended a two week intensive with Pritzker Prize winning architect Glenn Murcutt and spent a week in the jungle of Costa Rica studying the principles of biomimicry.

South Mountain Company sponsored my mentorship. As a project manager with the company, I have the opportunity to collaborate with an incredible team of designers, engineers and craftsmen unified under a common set of ideals. Our approach to design and construction is based in a holistic understanding of the required balance between the natural and built environments.

Architecture is opportunity. Our future is strengthened through progressive design that embraces the social and environmental logic of our time. Through our work we bolster the resiliency of the island as we navigate the evolution of sustainable design.
