“As both an architect and former educator, my motivation is to connect students and the learning environment to the inspiration and discovery of the outdoors, our communities, and to the wider world.”
Andrew’s architectural interests are focused on preK-12 education spaces and topics of energy efficiency and sustainable design. He has experience working across project phases, from facility assessment and early community engagement and visioning to design, construction document production, and construction administration.
Through his background working with young people as a classroom teacher and school administrator, Andrew understands the importance of providing healthy, supportive, and inspiring spaces for learning and the crucial roles schools serve in our communities.
Andrew brings his experiences working in rural, urban, suburban, and Indigenous communities throughout Oregon and New Mexico; in both public and independent institutions; and across grade levels to engage, listen, learn, generate ideas, and contribute in meaningful ways to the architectural process.
Andrew’s path to architecture and education was certainly influenced by being the grandson of an elementary school librarian, by other family members being industrial and interior designers, and by his middle school hand-drafting class.
