Far Lawn, NJ



I am trained as an architect. My visual and design style is based on the creativity of form and space. Through my work in architecture I have learned ways of using both form and space to create the sense of new life and function, and now with AWA I am using that experience with my knowledge of lighting to create amazing design.

I have worked at AWA with dedication for over 6 years, exercising creative problem solving strategies and implementing innovative solutions.

Some of the most notable projects that I have worked on are Singapore Chancery, New York; Bushwick Inlet, Brooklyn New York; KAFD Parcel 4.11 & Parcel 5.05, Riyadh Saudi Arabia; Mayar Wellness, Gurgaon India; Godrej Headquarters, Mumbai India; and Bihar Museum, Patna India.  I was also an integral member of AWA’s winning team for the Dubai Sixth Creek Crossing Bridge Competition.  My eye for detail has lead to the successful execution of several completed projects.
