I graduated in 2008 with a master's degree in architecture from the School of Architecture and Community Design (now part of the joint School of Visual and Preforming Arts) with a GPA of 3.8.

   My master's thesis explained how advanced computer technology could be better integrated into architecture, and the design of a quintessential information-tech-centric institution which I dubbed Icomde.

   An education in architecture has refined my sense of aesthetics and honed my sense of space and proportion. Truly understanding the way a building is put together has a profound impact on my skills as a level designer, allowing me to intuitively create realistic structures and spaces. The interplay of light in shadow within environmental design was a key focus of my work, as was creating visually distinct and clean silhouettes to guild the eye and focus attention where needed.

   Presented here is a very small selection of my work while in the architectural master's program at USF.
