About 

I had been working in Chicago with the Chicago Transit Authority Architecture department on transportation and commercial projects, and as a Architectural Design Consultant for residential, commercial and mixed-use buildings before moving to San Francisco.  I've worked with Myles Stevens at Stevens & Associates on various transportation, commercial, residential and mixed-use projects. I am currently working with a joint venture at KMD Architects on the new SFPUC headquarters building.  I have practical experience in construction management, construction administration, project management, managing a multi-discipline design team, architectural drawing and contract document production.


I have started taking the ARE and my immediate goal is to take all sections in 2012.
