About 

I have a broad background in Art, Architecture and Construction.  I became interested in Architecture as a result of my studio experiences in art and working in my own wood and metal fabrication studio.  I recently completed a degree in Architectural Technology with a concentration on building technology, codes, zoning, design and construction documents and am currently working on coursework in structural design.  I have experience with construction documents, NYC department of buildings filings and both commercial and residential millwork shop drawings.
