About 

For the past 15 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 CS6 Suite). 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 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 am currently receiving from courses I attend as part of an evening and online Historic Preservation Program at Bucks County Community College.  Additionally, I have completed all of my IDP units and I have plans to start my ARE's by the end of this year.
