About 

(PLEASE REFER TO MOD{all}studio PROFILE FOR RECENT WORK. THANKS)

A recurring theme in my present firm's recent work has been “being a good neighbor”, and it continues to inspire; bringing people together, consolidating utilities, and shrinking infrastructures is a goal.

As a creative, good humored, and hard-working individual, I look forward to the challenges of innovative solutions, collaborating with and leading project teams, and ensuring an inspired, well- supported workplace environment that focuses on providing Clients with unparalleled service and exceptional design. My many years of diverse experience paired with my constant yearning to inspire and contemplate our built environment will make me an excellent addition to your superior staff.

The past year has been extraordinary with several opportunities that have contributed to my professional growth. These opportunities include:


• Winning an international residential design competition for a sustainable renovation of an existing house in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York that is currently under construction http://www.mnn.com/your-home/remodeling-design/blogs/an-urban-eco-ttage


• Utilizing Pro-Bono services as an opportunity to connect with a community within
Cleveland for a community art installation, residential deconstruction, and
utilizing the deconstructed house to create urban green spaces.

This project has been submitted to two International conferences for consideration in being presented.


• The start of construction of The Hudson Passive Project -the first passive house in New York State (http://hudsonpassiveproject.com/images.html) – for which I was involved in developing the design of a prefabricated Mechanical/Kitchen/Bath Core enveloped in a highly insulated shell. The prefabricated component was developed for use by other residential projects and a range of consumers.
