I have been working at a small firms specializing in high quality and fully developed projects. The projects range from apartment renovations to new building construction. I oversaw several projects of varying size from the initial design, through landmarks reviews and building permit review through construction.

Prior to this, I worked at firms specializing in the creation and restoration of the outside surfaces of buildings.  My additional experiences consist of:  working as half of the architecture department in a very large, high end NYC real estate firm; working with a firm specializing in Local Law 11; and working contemporaneously at two firms.  Both of these firms were small, which allowed me to be exposed to many different facets of the mechanics and business of architecture firms.
