About 

I returned to the practice of Architecture after nearly three years in the Entertainment/Game Development Industry.  I have an accumulated eight years of experience in architectural offices working on commercial, institutional and residential projects through all phases of design and construction. During my last position with an A/E firm, I had spent a year and a half working exclusively on commercial projects with an emphasis on LEED certification. Before that, I spent over a year working on residential projects. That being said, I am eager to get involved again at any level with commercial and residential projects alike. My goals are to begin my architectural licensure in the state of New York and reinstate my LEED accreditation.
