I have 7 years of experience and I am licensed in New York since 2018. Due to COVID-19, I am currently looking for a new permanent position.  My project experience ranges from high-end single family townhouse renovations to multifamily new construction with 167 units.  I also have experience in commercial and educational projects.  Most of my work experience is focused on Construction Administration, however, I have developed construction documents for several projects.  It would be a pleasure to meet with you and tell you about my most recent project, a brewery/ tap room in Williamsburg, and my prior experience with historic preservation projects.
