Portsmouth, NH, US



I am a versatile senior architect. For the past 9 years I have had my own practice serving clients in New England. My prior experience includes serving as Director of Academic Services at ADD Inc, Cambridge, MA for two years and as a Principal at Sasaki Associates, Watertown, MA  for fifteen years. At Sasaki, I served as principal in charge of projects with key responsibility for both design and project management. I also served for 5 years as leader of the architectural discipline in this large, multi-disciplinary design firm.

In October, 2013 I moved to Tampa, FL. I continue to work on a few projects in NH and have begun design of a house in St Croix, USVI as  of Feb 2014.

After Sasaki I worked briefly as The Cambridge, MA branch office manager for the S/L/A/M Collaborative of Glastonbury, CT.

Throughout my career I have been involved in all phases of project delivery. However, I believe that, as I have evolved as an architect, my strength now is in project direction with a focus on management. I am also experienced in pre-project analyses such a due diligence and feasibility studies, and permitting.
