About 

For more than 18 years I have been actively involved in the architectural profession. My experience has covered most phases of development and production: pre-design, schematic design, design development, construction documentation, graphic architectural design (both hand rendered and 3-D generated), construction administration, and graphics (Adobe CC 2015). Upon graduation and as an honors student at Drexel University, I've had my student work exhibited at the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery as part of the annual student & faculty exhibition.

I am currently enrolled in an evening graduate program geared toward working professionals in the field of architecture and interior design.  I am in my second year of a two year program to obtain my Master of Arts in Sustainable Interior Environments at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, NY.

I continue into the field of architecture embracing the technological tools, materials, and methods that are shaping the way we design and build.  At the same time I continue the traditions of hand drafting, sketching, and rendering to marry the old and new. 

My current working environment has given me the ability to apply and build on the knowledge I have by allowing me to use BIM modeling as a way of advancing architecture through technology.
