About 

What makes a man is the very environment in which he must survive. Adaption is what makes the human the strongest species on planet Earth. The environment I grew up in was a small town with a large population on the south side of Long Island, Shirley. My father worked hard as a carpenter to support my family, while my mother was a stay at home mom for a good portion of my childhood. Growing up I was very active in athletics. I learned early that i had a gift for mathematics and enjoyed gym. As I matured, I began to learn more about my family and my curiosity with the built world. My past relatives were sculptors, and did some incredible work, like the clock above grand central station, and the hands on the Lincoln memorial in DC. Being the son of a carpenter introduced me to many construction and building projects. In high school I took Architectural classes and began to train in AutoCAD. There were a couple of nights where I stayed up all night, in order to complete the drawings for my Architectural class, upon finishing the drawing I came to a conclusion: “I could do this for the rest of my life.” I attended Alfred State University to complete my associate’s degree, and then moved on to Catholic University to complete my Bachelors and Masters. I played and participated in lacrosse all my life and would further my experience on the Men’s Lacrosse team at each school. I enjoy participating within the lacrosse Community still to this day,as well as, expanding my knowledge about architecture
