About 

I have spent the last four years focusing on the implementation of Sustainability in the Building Design, acquiring knowledge of the different green programs available and specializing in the LEED program.

While I have experience dealing with varieties of LEED projects, I also have an Architecture degree from the University of Florence. I have worked as an Architect for over 20 years.

I’m familiar with metric and imperial systems; European and American construction standards.

I speak three languages (English, Spanish and Italian) and I hold an active license in Architecture from the European Union.
