My background as Senior Designer at many highly regarded design firms, leading the design and the project team, will be an asset to your firm.  I view good design as the responsibility of the architect to educate and inform our clients and society.  The built form which shapes and marks an imprint on our experiences is of major significance.

I have considerable experience as a Project Architect, leading the project team and consultants, coordinating the work of different disciplines, working out details, generating a project schedule to meet a deadline, value engineering the construction budget, and overseeing the construction to assure the work is being implemented per the CDs.  My ability to organize and communicate has cultivated good working relationships and successful completion of projects. 

My years of experience as a Project Manager has rooted in me an intuitive/ instinctive nature in effectively working in the client’s best interest.  Whether it’s solving the logistical planning, phasing, programming and budgeting needs for a hospital client, researching and incorporating the trends in the boutique condominium market for a developer client, designing hardware/furniture for specific desires of a residential client, working with a lighting designer to best display an art piece for a art collector client, or partnering with a client of a historically iconic building to bring the public spaces of the building into the 21st century, I tackle the issues at hand.
