I was born & raised in Dayton, NJ and attended public school where I began my investigation in design & drafting. I always had an obsession with drawing buildings & places and playing with Legos as a child. I decided to pursue this interest, and learn & grow each day from the choice to pursue architecture. Since I have been in the design & construction industry I have worked on a variety of building types, most of them being in the private sector for high-end & luxury clientele.

See space with dimension.

Do observation through survey.
Make structure through organization.
Make interventions via transformation.
Use imagination and multiple tools.
How does the existing…
