I am an Architect with a broad portfolio of International experience. I have worked with several Design led studios in the UK, USA and Spain. Through my experience, I have gained expertise on all phases of design and construction, from leading diverse competition teams, through to developing details and managing projects on site, forming relationships with those that realize the drawing set.

I have also consulted with the Real Estate Developers and The City of Denver on new methods of form-based zoning and helped shape the Zoning Overlay and Design Guidelines for the River North neighborhood in Denver, Colorado. 

In addition to my professional experience, I have had the opportunity to teach several design studios at the University of Brighton, UK, including Studio 8, a vertical studio of 2nd and 3rd year students, themed on techniques and interventions for inhabiting a liquid edge, the coastline of Portsmouth, UK.

I hold a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Science in Design, Architecture, from Arizona State University.

I am a registered Architect in the United States and I currently reside in Madrid, Spain.
