I created this website in the summer of 2009 while a student at Miami University of Ohio working towards a Master of Architecture degree. The original intention was to use the website as a means to communicate to my instructors the progress I was making on my thesis work. However, the site quickly turned into a place to upload all of my thoughts, work, and experiments, whether it had to do with thesis or not.
Before college, I lived most of my life in the corn fields of Northwest Ohio in the small town of Deshler (Look it up). After grad school in 2010, my wife and I moved to Boston, MA to work for Paul Lukez Architecture. I spent 4 years in the field before deciding to focus on architecture visualization full time in 2014. I am currently working with Hartness Vision, a visualization studio in Boston, MA. If you have a project that needs illustrating , visit the studio website and navigate to the "contact" link at the top.
While my background has always been architecture, I'm constantly experimenting with all things visual. I still post my photography and drawings as these mediums play a large part in my understanding of proportion, layout, composition, lighting, and many other factors that directly relate to architectural illustrations. At the end of the day though, it all comes back to architecture and architecture illustrations. It's my biggest creative outlet and what I live to do.
