About 

I have a broad background in Art, Architecture and Construction.  I became interested in Architecture and Design as a result of my studio experiences in art and working in fabrication and production studios.  I recently completed a degree in Design Administration (2015) which includes a background in Architecture, Technology and Management.  I have experience with design development and construction documents, New York City department of buildings filings and both commercial and residential millwork shop drawings.
