Philadelphia, PA, US



I’m a young architect and preservationist. I deeply appreciate the positive role that architecture and design can play in society, and I’m interested in the intersection of contemporary design and technology as it relates to the historic built environment. 

I earned my Bachelor of Architecture degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology in 2015 and my Master of Science in Historic Preservation from the University of Pennsylvania Weitzman School of Design in 2021.

I am a Registered Architect and NCARB Certified for licensure in all 50 states.
