I am:

-An architectural designer with significant experience in the design and planning of complex buildings both ground-up and renovations/rehabilitations throughout New York City.

-A self-starter, comfortable in taking initiative and leading project teams.

-A good listener; a firm believer that this is the essential skill of a good designer and architect.

-Comfortable working at different scales, from master planning of several mixed use buildings on one site, to designing details of a storefront or building lobby entrance. I find that even the smallest scale projects present great challenges and fuel my creativity.

-Always keen to sketch my ideas on a piece of trace paper. I find this an invaluable tool of communication with my peers and collaborators.

-Ready for the next challenge laying ahead...
