About 

I am an architect and urban designer with a wide range of interests. My projects vary in scale from the regional planning of a bi-national watershed to the design and renovation of a small south Philadelphia rowhome. I enjoy re-purposing and refinishing furniture, cooking, playing the guitar, sketching, writing, and in general, working with my hands to experiment with creativity.
