New York, NY, US



I am an architect licensed in New York and New Jersey with over 25 years in the field.  I've garnered a wide range of industry knowledge in NYC through a number of prestigious firms including Santiago Calaltrava, Rafael Vinoly, Rockwell Group, and SOM.  I've had formidable experience overseeing large projects such as Florida Polytechnic University's new Innovation, Science and Technology Building, Brooklyn College's West Quad building and the Bronx County Hall of Justice.  Currently, I am endeavoring to pursue smaller more personal projects.  I am on my own working on a brownstone renovation in Brooklyn, an apartment remodel in NJ and a lake house upstate in Sullivan County, NY.
