YOUMedia Library

The YOUMedia Library serves community teens providing an open, inclusive, safe, inspirational and fun place to socialize and study. I applied an urban courtyard theme, angled the floor plan to create good sight lines and reflect a sense of the indoors and outdoors within four walls. Enjoy!

Navajo Home/Work Space

Annually, the Interior Design Educators Council (IDEC) organization runs a student competition. This is my entry.

Three shipping containers, 55% of the design needed to be living space, 45% work space. Quite a challenge, but I'm happy with my entry!

Spooner Roundhouse Lighting Design

As part of an ongoing project I'm helping with as Executive Director/Designer for Spooner's Friends of the Railroad Park (FORRP), I spent some time developing a lighting design for portions of the space we will be rehab'ng in the coming years. This was a great research opportunity and I love working with these historical buildings.

Samara Solar Light

Current solar powered outdoor lighting is cheaply made, difficult to store and has a high structural and functional failure rate due to harsh environmental conditions and sub-optimal designs and materials. 

There are four uses for outdoor lighting. 

  • Navigation – Assists in way-finding 
  • Safety – Renders hazards more visible 
  • Security – Assists personnel to protect persons and property 
  • Aesthetics - illuminates a cultural display 

Design and/or develop modular, scalable and durable sun-powered outdoor luminaries, sustainably manufactured using locally sourced materials that can be scaled and stored in singles and multiples compactly and will provide illumination for multiple outdoor lighting needs.

This was a great chance to research product design to understand mechanical parts of this simple machine, then apply what I learned to a new and refreshing design!
