About 

I am a Registered Architect in Ontario, Quebec, Massachusetts, and Florida.

I have extensive experience in schematic design, design development, and detailing (working drawings) of a wide range of buildings, from small-scale residential, through commercial, to large-scale public infrastructure. In addition, I have had various experiences in interior design, urban planning, and engineering. I started my carrier in Romania years ago, both as an architect and as an engineer. 

I completed the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) from December 2006 to November 2008 – all 9 divisions ARE 3.1 – during my internship in Montreal.

Since my registration moment, April 2009, I have been working mainly as an employee or as a freelance architect for architectural offices on Montreal and Toronto areas. On some occasions, I had the opportunity to draw my own projects – even if minimal as scope and budget – for my own clients.

I am eligible for board registration across US or Canada – I’m an NCARB Certificate holder.
