About 

     I have received my Master of Architecture degree from Roger Williams University in May 2012 after gaining several years of professional experience in offices in San Francisco, Chicago, and Shanghai working on projects of all different typologies and scales, and receiving my undergraduate degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
     I have experience on a wide range of projects encompassing all phases of design. This is not limited strictly to architectural design. I have technical experience in façade rehabilitation, roofing replacement, and façade ordinance when I was working with Klein & Hoffman, Inc. in Chicago. The accumulation of time spent on site with construction administration has really given me a good sense of how materials function and behave, as well as how buildings come together as a whole. The time I took between my bachelor’s and master’s degrees has given me enough time to fulfill the requirements of the Intern Development Program, and now that I have graduated, I will be ready to take the Architect Registration Exam.
