The world is so big and so small. Because of the sheer number of humans alive today and the lifestyles made possible by modern technology, we are like water molecules approaching boiling point – bumping into each other is unavoidable. This presents challenges, but also the opportunity for people of all ages and professions to globalize empathy, compassion and accountability. Architecture is one of countless platforms that can aid in the pursuit of this goal.

Currently a Rose Enterprise Architecture Fellow in Greenwood, Mississippi, I have been working in community led architecture since 2008. I have been fortunate to be involved in a variety of projects driven entirely by local people and their needs over the last four years. The cumulative experience of observing a wide variety of cultures, view points, and outcomes provides guidance in my work, from first meeting a community and beginning to understand their needs, throughout construction, occupancy and evaluation.
