About 

I received my bachelors degree of Architecture at the New York Institute of Technology. My thesis involved a study of architecture combined with real estate development. I developed a proposal that suggested a redevelopment of suburban towns located by major transit areas and investigated solutions at both macro and micro levels to provide initiative for developers while being beneficial for the town.

For the past five years I have been involved in designing and renovating local commercial projects. I helped develop conceptual design proposals while also presenting them to clientele. I enjoy working with others and have had success serving as team leader for design competitions.
