I have always been curious about things around me – people, buildings, nature, and art. Studying design and architecture has become a way for me to take this inherent curiosity and turn it into something physical, something that will last, and something that will reflect or respond to the culture that we live in. During my college career, I became passionate about the future of Omaha’s built environment and I wanted to be around people who share that passion. Alley Poyner Macchietto has shown a serious investment in making our city a healthier, more beautiful, and more vibrant place to be and a firm that I am proud to work with.
Odie is a nickname that many of my friends and family refer to me as. The origin is a bit hazy but the name goes all the way back to my elementary school days. I like to think that Odie is the trickster underdog who always finds curious ways to escape Garfield’s bullying ways.
