During the summer of 2010, I had the opportunity to backpack around all of Europe. Having already been around the world with the Navy, this experience was truly inspirational to my architectural knowledge. Through this Grand Tour I developed a greater interest in recording my experiences within my sketchbook, transforming the way I see and experience architecture.
Once again in 2013 I had the opportunity to go back to study and live at the Bauhaus University in Germany. During the eight month journey I not only learned in depth the local and European architecture, but I gained a valuable experience of the culture and customs of living abroad. This experience once again transformed my views and understanding of architecture and design. I gained invaluable incites on life and of other cultures that will constantly influence my design career.
