About 

Licensed in NY

I have worked the past 9 years on large scale mass transit and government infrastructure projects in and around the New York/ New Jersey area. Have worked on vastly complex and high profile projects such as renovation and redevelopment work for Newark Airport, the renovation of the Pier Luigi designed George Washington Bridge Bus Station, the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, as well as a variety of other projects.

In the past 9 years I have been heavily involved in the ACE Mentoring Program, helping to inspire and guide high school students towards their goals in the construction industry.
