Senior architect | Travois Design

From the time I was a kid, I have been building with anything I could get my hands on — Legos, cardboard boxes, wooden blocks. Now that I am an experienced architect, I try to bring that same sense of joy to each job. My Legos are collecting dust in my parents’ basement because now I use a new tool to build: relationships.

Our team will work with you to conceptualize every aspect of your development. We are the only architecture firm working in Indian Country that is part of a tax credit financing company.

That means, unlike other architects, we can wear two hats at once. We know what it takes to deliver a project that fulfills your community’s aspirations while sticking to a Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) or New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) investor’s budget.

After graduating from Kansas State University’s School of Architecture, I worked as the primary architect for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Region VII office. I worked with communities to help replace critical infrastructure after damaging storms.

My career has always brought together design considerations and community concerns with a strong focus on funding. Our group designs like an architecture firm but thinks like a financing firm. This helps us put ourselves in your shoes and anticipate the challenges you will face.

Contact Travois today so we can talk about your community’s vision for the future. I can help bring together a team of experts within Travois to help you every step of the way.
