I graduated from Syracuse University School of Architecture cum laude. My thesis on urban education was selected for the Thesis Awards Jury and was noted for an innovative approach to re-conceptualizing the relationship between education and community. Educational architecture is one of my largest passions and stems from my 10 months of service with City Year teaching English in Boston inner city schools. I have worked for 3 summers at Maryann Thompson Architects; a Cambridge based architecture firm that focuses in high end residential and small scale institutional buildings, where I worked on projects from schematic design to construction documents. I have also done work for Jacobs Architectural Woodworking; a Syracuse based Woodworking Company that focus on custom furniture, where I completed shop drawings from a series of pieces ranging from cantilevered benches to multimedia walls. My own furniture work has been put on display both in the School of Visual and Performing Arts and the School of Architecture at Syracuse University.

I collaborated with a team of 3 to create the construction drawings and specifications for a 400 unit housing complex of supportive and affordable housing for the nonprofit, Breaking Ground. Since filing the design documents I have been performing construction administration on the project, including weekly field reports and running on site meeting with the owner and contractor.
In addition to my work on for the Breaking Ground project I have been a member of the Office's Revit team, developing the office Revit standards and generating Revit content and templates.
