About me & my work:

Leah's big-picture visioning and integrated, R&D-style approach to architecture stems from her multi-discipline background. In 2014 she graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture and Minor in Fine Arts from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and, prior to architecture, Leah studied structural engineering for four years. Her architectural thesis, MECHA:spore, afforded her the opportunity to investigate truly interdisciplinary practice, weaving speculative design with aerospace engineering, materials science, anthropology, and more.

Managing business in diverse industries for over a decade, Leah's strengths lie in identifying large-scale needs, generating limitless ideas, defining solutions, and building and supporting the right team to successfully deliver great design. By blending boundaries between disciplines, working fluidly to create collaborative solutions, Leah facilitates the entire process, from contract through design and construction documents to construction administration and project close out. Her ability to absorb, process, and clearly communicate critical information ensures beautiful, sustainable, functional results.
