About 

I have been working in New York City for over twenty years as a project architect for mostly high end residential projects. I have overseen the projects from the initial design phase through completion and sign off. I have worked closely with clients and principals in developing the designs and documenting their decisions to produce the bid drawings. In the filing process, I have successfully navigated the city agencies, DOB, LPC, community boards and townships and produced the drawing for approvals and signoffs. My projects have required coordination with structural and mechanical engineers, a geothermal consultant, lighting and interior designers. I have worked closely with the contractors, their subs and artisans to ensure the projects reach our client’s expectations. During construction, I have always worked closely with the contractors, their subs and artisans to ensure the projects reach our client’s expectations.


Employment 

Platt Dana Architects, New York, NY, US, Project Architect

I worked closely with Kate Platt on two residential projects.The first was essentially a tear down and all new construction giving us the opportunity to explore different massings and plan options in the design phase. I also coordinated with the town, surveyor and civil engineer as this project had to meet wetlands requirements. The second was located Idaho and was an interior renovation with a few facade changes. I worked closely with the principal in developing the plan in the design phase and sourcing materials. I produced the pricing set for this project.
