Introduction to SAVVY Design Studio

Understanding that your home is your sanctuary.

Making your dreams come to life.

Using my skills to the best of my ability.

The satisfaction when it all comes together. 

These are the driving forces behind SAVVY Design Studio, founded in 2021.

I am an Architect registered in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia with over 15 years of experience in design and construction. I started in the industry with a degree in Building Materials and Wood Technology, graduating summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 2006. For the next four years I worked in general contracting and learned about all aspects of the business through training programs working as a project manager, estimator, and roof truss designer. 

My favorite projects have always been homes, where I enjoy
putting myself in the client’s shoes to imagine their home
as the best that it can be.

I love construction, but felt the calling of my creative side. I went back to school for a Master’s in Architecture and graduated from the University of Maryland in 2014. For several years I worked in suburban Maryland on commercial and multifamily projects, with responsibility for every aspect of the projects from initial design concept through construction administration. I pride myself in my ability to create meaningful design, connect with my clients, and earn their trust. At SAVVY Design Studio, I have brought those abilities to my own residential architecture practice.

Through my varied experience, I know the entire design and construction process intimately. As an Architect, I bring that knowledge to my clients as their resource and advocate.

When you work with me, we work together to create a vision
for your sanctuary and make it a reality.
