As a new member of the Ogawa Fisher team, I’m excited to be taking part in the blog-osphere.

I’m a native of Austin, Texas and a proud University of Texas Longhorn. I received my Bachelor of Architecture in 2012 and shortly after made the cross-country move up to Portland, OR. I’ve since been exploring the endless beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Traveling to places both near and far, experiencing new people, places, and landscapes has become a necessity for my soul. The changing seasons of the region allow for different explorations and activities during different times of the year. From snowboarding the snowy slopes of Mt Hood to biking and backpacking around the Columbia River Gorge, there is always more exploring to do.

My interest in architecture lies with how the built environment affects the people who interact with it. Particularly, with the power of design to improve lives and empower people and the communities they live in. So, I’m excited to be learning from Hiromi and Lynn, as each OFA project is a reflection of the clients' wants and dreams.
