I am a New York State Registered Architect.
In 2003, I graduated with distinction from the University of Chile after spending my 5th year in France doing independent research on waterfront redevelopment trends in Europe and North America which was followed by my urban design and adaptive reuse proposal for an area of Valparaiso's rezoning into recreational use. My thesis later became reference material for students and Valparaiso's city planners.
After graduation, I obtained an Architect's license to practice in Chile and worked in several offices in large infrastructure and retail projects, until I had the opportunity to relocate to New York City and work with ABS Architects designing and building several awarded request for proposals for new residential developments in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Bronx.
Eventually, I became interested in green buildings and sustainability, and graduated in 2009 from the master's program in Urban Design from CCNY, CUNY.
Currently, I provide consulting services for several small NYC firms.
