About 

My experience consists of a mix of construction, academic and architectural. I recently attended the University of Massachusetts and obtained my Bachelors in Architecture with a minor in Building Construction Technology. During this time I interned for a year with an architecture firm gaining experience in all aspects of architecture. Upon graduating I worked full time at Kraus Fitch Architects in Amherst, MA. They are a small firm specializing in sustainability where I worked on a large scale institutional project for Smith College along with several residential projects and a senior housing community located in Westhampton, MA.

 

Currently I am attending Northeastern University to get my Masters of Architecture. I plan to go on to obtain my license and become a strong and successful designer of large scale commercial projects that focus on sustainability and renewable energy.
