About 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, along with a minor in architectural history and construction management, from Louisiana State University in May 2010, and a Master’s degree in Historic Preservation, concentration in Preservation Design, from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, & Preservation in May of 2012. 

I work mainly in the realm of building documentation, façade and interior restoration, architectural conservation / materials evaluation, & structural and material repair. Over the past three years, my work has been focused on exterior façade restoration of historic and landmarked buildings within New York City.
