I have got Masters of Science degree in Architecture from the Technical University of Szczecin, Poland.  Since relocating to the United States in 1988  I've worked with four different companies AP Design Group, United Architects, Albert Taus and Assoc. and H2L2 Architects/Planners located in Philadelphia, PA.  At H2L2 I worked on national and international projects, initially as a project architect, then as an architect designer gaining valuable experience in the fields of international design processes and technologies.  I am a US citizen.
