I am originally trained as an architect and have over ten years of experience working at the intersection of design and business, working with complex client organizations and multi-disciplinary collaborative design teams on the fuzzy front end of projects, into design development and through execution.
Before starting Burlix Studio, I previously worked as a designer at Snohetta in New York, where I collaborated on designing the architecture, interiors and landscape of large cultural projects, including the World Trade Center Memorial Pavilion at Ground Zero. I have also worked as a designer for the Renzo Piano Building Workshop in Genova, Italy, Wendy Evans Joseph Architecture in New York, NY, MY studio in Cambridge, MA and PGAV in St. Louis, MO. My professional experience includes set designs for theater and opera, interior and designs for the hospitality and entertainment sectors, graphic, information design and identity branding for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
I earned my masters in architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, and my bachelor of arts in architecture from Washington University in St Louis, Missouri. I currently teach design studios at the Parsons School of Design and Management and have previously taught at Cornell University as a teaching associate and as a visiting critic at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, Parsons School of Architecture, NYC.
I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and currently live and work in Brooklyn, New York.
