About 

I revel in all aspects of architectural design, from the tiniest details to the overall site planning. I possess a creative, passionate, and hard-working mentality, and I eagerly tackle every design situation that I encounter. I have a B.A. in Architecture from Lehigh University and obtained my Master's of Architecture from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. My education consistently emphasized projects with strict deadlines, the importance of learning new software technologies, and approaching problems with ingenuity and finesse. I have five years as a professional in a firm that focuses on the importance of client relations, quick turn around on projects, and entrusting employees with independent growth.
