I am a LEED Green Associate with a Masters of Architecture from Roger Williams University. My thesis was an adaptive reuse project that pushed the concept of the hybrid building to revitalize a community in Hartford, Connecticut. I am very interested in Sustainability, Historic Rehabilitation, Adaptive Reuse and Community Regeneration. I am also interested in healthcare and residential design. I have participated in several Habitat for Humanity builds and have been a member of AIAS since 2006. I am the co-owner of a small photography business operating in MA, CT and RI which is one of my favorite hobbies.
