I am a Designer, a Carpenter and a Welder with formal training in architecture and construction.

I attended the Architectural Engineering program at University of Hartford, and finished my Master's degree in Architecture at Syracuse University in 2012.

I have experience with historic restoration at CANY in NYC.  Since then I have gone off on my own, working on a small scale, building houses and furniture.  I worked with a client to develop, execute and build the final design of a rural housing development in Connecticut in 2018.  

I recently traveled to Iowa to assist with the design and re-build of a rural development with WAS (Westbrook Artists’ Site), run by my former Syracuse professor, Kevin Lair.  During my time there, we worked to design and re-build the interior and exterior of an existing rural barn site into an adaptive reuse of public and private spaces. 

Through my experience I have obtained lots of knowledge in construction techniques and material tectonics.
