I am a project + design manager at Opportunities Communities in the Boston area working for two non-profit community development corporations, The Neighborhood Developers and Nuestra Comunidad.
I serve as a NOMA Empowerment Committee Co-Chair, organize with Design As Protest Planning and Policy Committee, and I am proud to teach Community Practice at The Boston Architectural College. In 2021 I joined the Association for Community Design board of directors and beginning in 2022 I serve on the Boston Society of Architects board.
I work to understand how architecture and design can best serve communities. I insist that creative fields are viable vehicles for social change and justice. I am committed to prioritizing community voices in design processes.
I am a licensed architect in the state of Texas. I was an Enterprise Rose Fellow from 2019-2021.
