About 

I am an award winning M.Arch graduate with 4+ years experience working in architectural firms. I am an ambitious architect with a self motivated work ethic and excellent time-management and organizational skills. I enjoy being productive and look forward to taking on larger responsibilities and working hard to fulfill my aspirations of becoming a great designer and sustainable architect.

Sustainable design and development is an issue I am passionate about and intend to pursue in my career.  My passion and drive is to develop a healthy and sustainable environment and to reduce the negative impacts of construction through the creation of beautiful sustainable design and urban development.  In my efforts thus far to further that goal I’ve completed a Certificate in Sustainable Design along with the LEED AP.  I’ve also worked on two LEED certified projects, including being a Project Administrator for a LEED Interiors project. 

I have worked in architectural firms for more than four years and have experience in all phases of design, code and zoning reviews, construction documents and construction administration. My projects have been located in PA, NJ & NY and are across a range of clientele such as health care facilities, medical offices, commercial buildings, corporate offices and mid-rise residential. I have extensive knowledge of Revit and expertise in utilizing it in design, construction documents and project completion. Most recently, I have complete 4 of the 7 ARE licensing exams.
