Academic Interests

I have been researching the tiny house movement; specifically, land use barriers to tiny home integration. I am also interested in international planning studio education and rural/small town community planning. 

Top Scholarly Accomplishments

Last October I presented preliminary findings on my tiny house research in Portland, Oregon, and the "Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP)" annual conference.  In 2016 I also published an article on the importance of international planning studio education in "Town Planning Review."

Previous Experience

I taught the graduate-level Planning Studio at Clemson University, located in Clemson, SC, for the past three years.
