Having graduated with a Masters of Architecture degree, I am prepared and motivated to take on professional projects with enthusiasm regardless of project size or complexity. I have extensive experience in high-end residential remodels and new construction in Seattle. In addition I have worked as an accessibility consultant, preforming plan examinations and building inspections at various phases of construction for multi-family and educational projects.
Most recently, I have moved back to Southern California, to begin contract work and accessibility consulting.
