I am an early-career architect with a wide variety of experience across different programs and project types. Through my work at firms in New York City and in the DC area, I’ve gained experience on a wide range of project types: residential, hospitality, TV studios, educational facilities, and office facilities.
At my current position at Parsons Corporation, the Engineering Support Contractor for the Job Corps
Program, I lead a team that prepares space planning designs and develops FF&E specifications for new Job Corps buildings and centers. I also work on historic preservation issues on Job Corps campuses, and I frequently do graphic design work for the office.
I am actively pursuing licensure and have recently completed four divisions of the ARE.
