Goose Island State Park Pavilion

A design/build project completed during my first semester as an interior design graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin.  The pavilion is designed as a dining hall and meeting place for youth groups and interpretive nature walks hosted by the park. 


Collaboratively designed and built by a group of 10 students with oversight by Professor Coleman Coker.

Hand Drafted Plans

These are a collection of drawings done under contract for the Bunkhouse Group and McGuire Moorman Hospitality in Austin, Texas.  Each is hand drafted and then lightly modified digitally using Photoshop.  The site drawings are hybrids combining elements of both site plans and landscaping plans.

Spatial Visualizations

These hand drawings are some examples of visualizations commissioned prior to project completions to help design and marketing teams evoke a mood and understanding of space and environment in various hospitality projects.
