I am an Intern Architect pursuing my provincial registration and currently searching for a new position with a leading Architecture office in Vancouver. I am an organized and responsible employee and thrive within a collaborative design team atmosphere.

Over the past decade, I have worked as an Intern Architect for international offices in Rotterdam and Berlin, as a designer and project manager of high-profile public art installations across the US and Canada, and as the Art Director for a nonprofit artist workspace in New York City.

I was born and raised in New Jersey but have called Vancouver home for the past 7 years.
