About 

Although currently employed, I am ready for new, stimulating and challenging opportunities in architecture that will further my professional growth as well as increased responsibility.

I have been lucky to have been in the architecture industry for 17 years. In the year 20212, I graduated with an M.Arch degree from the Mass College of Art and Design, but started my architectural journey in 1997 at Wentworth Institute of Technology, where in 2001, I earned a B.S. degree in Architectural Engineering. I worked for almost 10 years at Studio G architects, progressing from Intern to Job Captain during this period. I have begun the ARE process and hope to be a Registered Architect before the year 2017's end.

I believe the best types of architectural design are the ones where the design and engineering elements are expressed in the building's shape and aesthetics.  When not working in architecture, I help plan and organize events such as birthday parties, weddings and small gatherings for my family and friends.
