New York, NY, US



I am an Architectural Designer at SOMA Architects in New York City, NY and a graduate the Carnegie Mellon University School of Architecture in Pittsburgh, PA.

My interests range from photography and film to tinkering with electronics and designing/fabricating furniture.

I have expertise in Revit, Rhinoceros 5, Grasshopper. 3D Studio Max, AutoCAD, ArcGIS, and V-ray as well as Adobe Creative Cloud programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, AfterEffects, etc.

My graphic and rendering work has been featured on television, in print, and on public advertisements.  Such work  has attracted and retained high profile clients at several firms.

I also design websites, apartments,  teach Adobe software academically, and build computers professionally.  I have experience working in feature film and with digital fabrication tools.

I am always looking for a new challenge.
