Currently testing my way towards being a Registered Architect. I completed my Master of Architecture 1 degree in December 2011 at Cornell University. I also attended Pratt Institute for Interior Design. I currently am the lead Interior Designer at TMS Architects in Portsmouth, NH. I enjoy working on projects that allow me to work laterally between exterior and interior design such as homes, restaurants and hotels.
