I am a recent graduate of the Yale School of Architecture Master of Architecture I program (Class of 2019).  I have 2+ years of work experience in architectural design and project management, from all phases spanning pre-design to construction documentation.  I have been employed at both Architectural Design firms as well as Real Estate Development/Project Management Firms.  I am currently interested in gaining experience in residential design and construction, specifically in New York City.  I have a strong desire to take a hands-on approach to construction processes and to learn more about ways to optimize current design delivery models.  


Matter Real Estate, New York, NY, US, Junior Project Manager

I am currently employed at Matter Real Estate, a Real-Estate Development and Project Management firm that specializes in non-profit work. During my time at Matter I have successfully led the project management for the transition of the Goodwill Headquarters from Astoria to Brooklyn, including a comprehensive interior renovation of their current offices in Brooklyn. I have also led the design development for the new construction of a single-family home in Westchester County that is being financed and developed by Matter. My additional responsibilities include real-estate development and architectural consultation for a number of additional non-profit clients around New York City.

Centerbrook Architects and Planners, LLP, Centerbrook, CT, US, Architectural Design Staff Lvl 2

I began my work at Centerbrook Architects as an intern during my second summer of graduate school. Upon graduation I returned to Centerbrook to continue assisting with the design development and construction implementation of a large institutional project, the Yale University Peabody Museum of Natural History. I was responsible for a large portion of visualizations for this project, and was also given ownership over the development of construction documents for the Museum's primary space - the Central Gallery. After completion of construction documentation I returned home to New York, where I currently reside.
