The One Rendering Challenge 2019

Architizer has just announced The One Rendering Challenge that asks participants to create one rendering that powerfully communicates an architectural form or space and the experience of those that would inhabit it. I will join an amazing group of jurors who include...

KRob Competition 2019

The 45th Ken Roberts Memorial Delineation Competition (KRob) has long been one of my favorite architecture visualization competitions. I'm always blown away by the uniqueness and quality of work and how each year seems to draw out more imaginative and compelling...

Porter Sq. At Night

Alright, I finally was able to finish up my design of Porter Square Station and therefore create a rendering revealing the new design. I kept the same view angle as the "Under Construction" renderings to finish off the series. This also meant I was able to reuse a lot...

Portfolio Vol. 4

My latest portfolio released in 2016, Portfolio Volume 4 discusses new layout  and illustrations/diagrammatic styles. Over 35 posts break down each illustration and explores ideas of composing and refining portfolio presentation techniques.

Portfolio Vol. 3

Released in 2014, Portfolio Vol. 3 builds off of Portfolio Vol. 2 by introducing a new workflow that includes Indesign to better manage page and text organization. New image styles such as x-ray illustrations and exploded axons are introduced.

Portfolio Vol. 2

Developed in 2007, this was my second portfolio created after grad school. The layouts are relaxed with the text playing an important role on many of the pages. Except for the thesis spreads, each project uses no more than 2 spreads to describe the project requiring a denser use of text and images in the layout
