About 

Born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio as a first generation American-Italian. I am currently seeking employment as an entry level architect, working to complete my IDP and attain my license. My graduate work was completed at Arizona State University where I attained my Masters of Architecture. My undergraduate work was completed at The Ohio State University where I attained a Bachelor of Science in Architecture. I've studied abroad in Italy for three months and also was able to visit most of my family. My interest in architecture is long standing since childhood and my godfather's encouragements spurred me to pursue an architecture education. I am very interested in adaptive/industrial reuse, education/mixed-use/healthcare/hospitality design, environmental and sustainable design, and creating a unique and valued experience for the visitor. I hope to have my license to practice Architecture by the time I reach 30-32 years old. I would one day like to become a partner and principal of my own architecture fi
