Architecture, urbanism and environment are my passions, I strive for tactile results and thrive in either a collaborative or solo atmosphere. A nuanced understanding of the urban condition today and historically is vital and always informs my approach to problem solving. Each city is different, but many good cities share the same underlying principles. How can we maintain the character and individuality of cities (and thus structures) while simultaneously bringing them into the 21st century? I believe the answers are rooted in sustainability and community. Within those two realms are a wealth of resources that can help us as designers to create not just best practice, but innovative practice.

Parsons The New School for Design, New York, NY, US, MArch, Architecture
As a M.Arch candidate much of my focus has been on sustainable, green and resilient design (to use the current buzz words). I've had the opportunity to design with a team a Passive House row home, for Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia. In addition, many of my studio projects have focused on innovative affordable housing and urban infrastructure.
This past Fall 2013 semester my Design Studio was taught by Bjark Ingles & Daniel Kidd. Using their work on the Rebuild by Design project as a guide, students worked on their own designs for protecting NYC shorelines. Mine can be seen on my website.
I'm currently conducting research for my thesis, which revolves around addressing the issue of waste/trash in NYC, and the creation of a dynamic marine building which will offer a new paradigm about how waste is processed in NYC. I will begin the design phase at the end of January 2014!

Pratt School of Architecture, Brooklyn, NY, US, BArch, Architecture
I completed the first year of the five year pre-professional degree at Pratt. While I was relatively happy with my education at Pratt, I chose to finish my bachelor's degree at The New School, as I was seeking a more well rounded undergraduate study, with the intention of going back to architecture for my master's degree.
