To this point, I’ve worked in two previous architectural firms: the first was in Boston in which I worked on a variety of residential and institutional sustainable projects (including Harvard’s Allston Science Complex, and the Mount Pleasant Home in Jamaica Plain). The other was an internship in NYC with an architect specializing in high-end residential projects (including a loft in Greenwich Village and a house in upstate NY).Recently I worked as a CAD Designer, mechanical coordinator and structural steel detailer on a variety of construction projects including two hospitals three university buildings, two libraries and an community center all located in Western Massachusetts. Additionally, I’ve worked in two architectural millwork shops, illustrated a book of plywood designs, worked in construction management and helped designed a house renovation in Toronto that is currently under construction.
