Drawing from a background in art, architecture and energy focused, circular design, I focus on materiality and performance to investigate an architecture that has positive social, cultural, and environmental impacts. With a digital-analog collaborative approach, I operate at the intersection of technology and the vernacular, and of history and contemporaneity and value experimentation that is grounded in craft and making. 

Michelle is one half of mbns,  working with Nicole Salnikov as a collaborative project exploring physical, social, and cultural paradoxes. It is a practice of experimentation and synthesis, always tuning and responding.

Since 2017, Michelle has been a member of umbau school for architecture and has worked as a project manager with OPAL Architecture / Research / Design. She is now working towards a Masters in Advanced Architecture at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.
