I have been actively involved in architecture for over two decades. My experience has covered several phases of project development, management, and construction: pre-design/programming, schematic design, design development, construction documentation, graphic architectural design (both hand rendered and 3-D generated images and presentations), project management, and construction administration through a project's completion. Upon graduation and as an honors student at Drexel University, I had my student work exhibited at the Leonard Pearlstein Gallery as part of the annual student & faculty exhibition.

My education continued with an evening graduate program for working professionals at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I obtained my Master of Arts degree in Sustainable Interior Environments in May 2017, graduating from the program Summa Cum Laude. In addition to my education, I am a licensed architect in the state of New York, a member of the American Institute of Architects, and NCARB certified for reciprocal licensure in multiple U.S. jurisdictions.

In my current position at Interior Architects as Senior Project Architect & Associate, I oversee a team as the technical lead for several high profile clients.  As architect and technical lead, I implement drawing standards, review projects for consistency, perform technical reviews, and confirm code compliance. During Construction Administration, I am involved in onsite construction coordination, responding to RFI’s, submittal review, and review of substantial & final completion. Outside of work, I volunteer my time as a member of the IIDA NY Sustainable Circle and assist in organizing events around the city, spreading awareness of current and future initiatives in sustainability.

Local, state, and international code research are ongoing components to my current and previous job positions. In addition, I have been involved with New York City Landmarks Preservation submissions in conjunction with SHPO.          

I am proficient with several programs including AutoCAD, Revit, 3ds Max, SketchUp Pro, Enscape, InDesign, and Photoshop. For the past fifteen years one of my ongoing roles has been Revit Model Manager.  I have developed and managed Revit projects, templates, worksets, and families (including the development of parametric families). In addition, I provide troubleshooting by assisting staff with any questions they have with Revit’s implementation into projects.  As a Project Manager for several accounts at IA, I am experienced with Deltek Vision project planning and Microsoft Project.
