Hayley is a born-and-bred Pacific Northwestner. She grew up in southern Oregon, splitting her time between the coastal town of North Bend, Oregon, and the small town of Roseburg on the mighty Umpqua river.
In 2010, she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Architecture from Portland State University. Following her undergraduate studies, Hayley joined RSVR visual research, where she and a group of creative friends started building art installations “after-hours” in Tacoma and Seattle. Following two years of travel, a variety of jobs, and miscellaneous creative opportunities in Portland, Hayley moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, her sights set on a master’s degree in architecture. Her experience at the University of Washington allowed her to explore her interest in the connection between landscape and architecture. She completed her thesis work and graduate studies in December of 2014.
