About 

I was Born and raised in New York I received my Bachelors degree in Architectural Studies at Ithaca College and am currently studying for my Masters in Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of which I will acquire in May 2019. 

I have had approximately 3 years of experience working in an architecture, visualization, and engineering firms as seen in my resume. I have worked on many projects and played a role in each phase from bid to construction documentation. 

I discovered my focus in my architectural career is sustainability and energy efficient design. Along with my work and educational experience I have become very proficient in Revit, Rhino, Adobe suites, and many other modeling/designing programs as seen in m portfolio.

Taitem Engineering, Ithaca, NY, US, Intern

Working in an Engineering firm I was able to experience the engineering side of the business which allowed me to understand any problems or conflicts that arise as an engineer in a design. Having this extra discipline allows me to understand the issues that may rise in design and account for those ahead of time. During my employment at Taitem I worked with Structural, Mechanical, and Electrical engineers on local residential and commercial buildings.

Ithaca College, Ithaca, NY, US, Architectural Studies

The Architectural Studies Program at Ithaca College was a couple years old once I arrived and began my studies. My classes focused on Architectural history and concept, but I had a specific focus on sustainability. During my time at Ithaca I took advantage of the new program and used that to create a connection with the students of the major through Architecture Club which I co-founded and ran for two years. While in the club I worked with the Environmental Studies Department and designed an Aquaponics garden (implemented in the dining hall) and a roof garden (implemented on campus).
