About 

Throughout my career, I have had a passion for the role of architecture and planning in the enhancement of urban areas. I have over fourteen years of work experience in both architecture and planning capacities with experience in the public and private sectors.  I have worked for firms in Miami, New York and Kuala Lumpur on projects in USA, Asia and the Middle East.

I have been involved in all phases of architectural professional practice, including schematic design, design development, construction documents and on-site construction administration.

During the economic slowdown in the United States real estate market, I took the opportunity to pursue architecture and planning work in Asia, working with firms in Kuala Lumpur from 2010 until 2014. My work in Malaysia involved the design and management of various large-scale projects, including residential, corporate office headquarters, mixed-use developments and master plans of up to 180 acres.

Since returning to USA in 2015, I have been working with Handel Architects in New York.
