About 

From a very young age, I acquired an immense curiosity for how things work, are made, and can be improved upon. I have chosen the architecture profession for this very reason, it is a field that is ever changing. My curiosity is constantly fed by new design challenges, possibilities, and people I get to interact with on a day to day basis. I happily take on any and all parts of the design process, which is why I started my professional path at small design firm. Right from the start I have had the opportunity to completely design multiple new buildings in the Brooklyn and Queens area. This includes everything from the zoning, architecture, structure, energy, sprinklers, plan examinations, and much more. I am registered with NCARB and currently pursing Architectural licensure. 

As an additional note I am also very passionate about the space industry and would like to one day combine as apply my architecture knowledge to specialize within the field of space architecture.
