About 

I’ve focused my career to become a well-rounded and complete Architect both in types of projects I’ve worked on as well as the scope of the work I’ve contributed.

I am a licensed architect in New York, a member of the American Institute of Architects, certified by the National Council of Architecture Registration Boards and a LEED® Accredited design Professional. 

I have worked on various typologies of projects including: Aviation, Healthcare, Education, Residential, Senior Living, Hospitality, Mixed Use/ Urban Design, Public Projects, Retail/ Commercial, Religious, Criminal Justice and Renovation/ Rehabilitation.

I have been integrally involved in projects of varying scales and complexities for many prominent institutions in the New York metropolitan area and throughout the United States, where I have led the design and construction of new facilities and comprehensive renovation projects. 

I am comfortable in all phases of design, from early Schematic and feasibility studies to Construction Documents. I have extensive experience in field coordination and Construction Administration. Working with DOH and DOB, as well as other governing bodies regarding project approval, to fulfill required processing applications and review processes. I have also worked as a third-party life safety consultant & performed Q.C. for very large-scale medical institutions in NYC (NYP WCMC, CUMC and NYU MC). I’m experienced writing proposals, writing specifications, managing and coordinating internal project teams, owners/ clients, and consultants.

In the end, the best form of marketing is a project that is well designed and constructed, that provides a cost effective solution, and best serves a client's needs.

New York Landmarks Conservancy Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award, 1st Place

Central Park Police Station, N.Y.C. – Renovation, Expansion & Temporary Building
The Central Park Police Precinct is a national and New York City landmark and has been home to the New York Police Department since 1936. The original building was designed in 1870 to be a stable.
This project was initiated to restore the building itself, accommodate a new larger program from the police, and allow for a modernized police precinct stationhouse. The Police Department also needed more space for additional and upgraded technology, security and communications. The addition of a lightweight metal canopy over the existing courtyard allows the complex to function in a way that is compatible with the original design. The courtyard, originally intended for moving and organizing carts and horses, now will serve as the organizing principal of the new precinct. All stationhouse function will center on a new lobby and main desk which will occupy the newly enclosed courtyard.
At the completion of the façade restoration, interior renovation and new addition the temporary stationhouse will be demolished to create room for a parking lot.

2011 First Niagra, A-Time-to-Build Award: Best Educational Project under $10 Million, 1st Place

With new curricula that would support its transition from an associate to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution, Morrisville State College asked Perkins Eastman to transform a former agricultural building into a modern light-filled space for new programs in architecture and technology—the Center for Design and Technology.

Forming a dynamic new entrance to the Morrisville campus, the character of the former dairy barn, an important campus structure, was preserved—reflecting the College’s longstanding commitment to sustainability—while the design is decidedly 21st-century. Indeed, the 23,000 sf LEED Silver building has itself become a teaching tool for the College’s new courses in sustainable architecture and interior design, enhancing the creative environment for both students and faculty. With the silhouette of the former barn now clad in energy-efficient glass—letting in ideal northern light to flood the interior spaces during the day—the building serves as a sculptural object by night, transmitting a warm glow from the reclaimed barn siding used throughout the interior.

The dramatic entrance atrium welcomes visitors with a soaring gallery to display student work, while introducing the “universal” studio concept that organizes the program, retaining flexibility and opportunity for future growth. Additional studio space is achieved at the mezzanine level, which connects to a cylindrical stair that as external sculpture recalls the grain silos that once served the barn. Communal spaces, including a digital production and photo area, a woodshop and universal laser cutter, and rapid prototyping machines, provide further support for this 21st-century educational environment.

The simple and bold design gesture of the vernacular architecture lends the building an elegant presence that serves as a refreshing counterpoint to the typical campus building while also paying quiet homage to its agricultural lineage.
