Hi, my name is Laura.  My background is in architecture and using visual design to tell compelling stories. I am interested in  emerging technologies, self-directed learning/maker education, and how we use design to improve people’s lives and the world we live in.  

My projects on this site reflect who I am as a person and as a designer.  Ranging form a built vertical garden structure to a neighborhood watershed and mapping exercise, my work continues to evolve.  Beginning to explore the ties of data visualization and the role of design thinking in a holistic context.  

When not designing, you will find me biking through the unique neighborhoods in D.C., visiting the local coffeeshops and bookstores or devising paper bag contraptions for our guinea pig, Zippy DuPont.
