After majoring in urban design as an undergrad at New York University, I continued my studies at the City College of New York, where I received an M.Arch degree.  Over the past few years, I have worked with several New York architects and designers. Most recently, I have been doing freelance consulting work with Shalat Architects. I designed and developed their new website, and have handled drafting and rendering projects as needed.

Previously, I held the positions of junior designer and materials librarian at Crème Design. In these positions I was responsible for drafting and 3D modeling (primarily with AutoCAD and SketchUp), as well as developing other presentation materials, such as plan and elevation renderings in Photoshop and Illustrator. I also managed the design of a bridge and waterfront development proposal to help Crème expand its range of design work.

Before joining Crème, I spent a year at a start-up firm called Gil Even-Tsur Architecture Workshop, where I helped build the company’s portfolio of work in New York City and Israel. I worked closely with the principal during the schematic design phase for several projects, and I was in charge of designing and maintaining the firm’s website.

I recently moved to the DC area from Brooklyn, and am looking to start my career here.
