I’m currently working as a Project Architect and Designer at a small office in New York, with a focus on commercial design and construction, as well as residential work. I have ten years of experience within a diverse range of design practice areas including retail, branding and graphic design, and civil construction projects. In my current position, my role as an architectural designer shifts between leading collaborative conceptual and schematic design phases to independently managing project documentation and construction administration.
Feel free to contact me for more information, my resume, portfolio samples, etc.
