About 

Architect and founder of BLANKSPACES, a modern coworking community of entrepreneurs and freelancers for whom we provide flexible office plans.  I still practice architecture through my firm, CODAspaces.  I typically design commercial interiors for offices and restaurants, and more recently, residential additions and renovations.  After negotiating several leases for BLANKSPACES, I now have a much more in-depth understanding of landlords and other real estate issues.
