Most recently, I worked at Robert Young Architect, New York, as a Project Architect + Designer for private homes in far east Long Island.  Those projects involved a careful analysis, retention and renovation of the existing building fabric, along with the addition of a decidedly minimal Modernist extension.  Before that, I had a substantial tenure at Alexander Antonelli Architect, New York, entering as an Intermediate Architect and working my way up to Senior Project Architect.  From Schematic Design to Construction Administration, I worked on high-end residential, new construction, multi-building properties, in styles as varied as New England Colonial, Shingle Style and Southampton barn.  In recent years, the firm had also branched out to Architect-led-Contracting.

I received a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University, and am licensed in the State of New Jersey.

I count design, detailing and construction administration to be my strengths, and would love to continue to work on all aspects and phases of a project.  I feel that I am versatile in design, as can be seen in the traditional aesthetic of recently completed projects, and in the modern vocabulary of the museum project [for Peter Guggenheimer Architect, as Architect-of-Record to TWBTA]; of the carriage house intervention [for Leslie Gill Architect]; and of the school/competition projects.
