Annie is a Chicago transplant originally from Boise, Idaho. Her passion for learning about progressive architecture, urbanism and equitable spaces led her to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While working on her Masters of Architecture at SAIC she spent time collaborating with visiting artist Theaster Gates in the Geoffrey Design Studio. It was during this experience she learned how art and architecture can serve as a purposeful, exploratory, and consequential cultural catalyst.
She is driven by the notion that strong designs can transcend scales and project typologies. That architecture is context, and through this lens design has the potential to foster positive growth of communities, existing infrastructure, and ecological networks.
When she’s not at work you can typically find her along the lake – either training for her next marathon, reading, or watercolor painting.
