About 

I am currently pursuing my Masters of Architecture at Pratt Institute. I graduated from Lehigh University with a BA in Architecture. Prior to starting graduate school I worked as a Design Consultant at Nicholson Studio, a Manhattan-based, high-end residential design firm, as well as BR Design, a corporate interior design firm. I enjoy drawing, writing and traveling.

I conducted surveys and implemented these into our existing CD sets to compare measurements. I also set up CD sets to get approved to be sent to engineers and consultants and I assisted with some of the corporate space planning schemes.

Barry Rice Architect, New York, NY, US, Design Intern

Many of our projects are historic renovations, so most of my tasks involve handling Landmarks Commission and DOB packages. Coming in the middle of many ongoing projects meant working on Revit models that I had not previously worked on and generating captivating renderings for clients.

Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, US, Architecture

The degree is a Bachelors of Arts in Architecture but is very rigorous and places an emphasis on the design process. Was part of the Real Estate program, taking courses in development, construction and real estate finance. I also took courses each summer: drawing and history courses in Italy the summer after my second year and a design course focused on parametric design after my third year. I also did a semester abroad in London at UCL, taking arch theory courses at the Bartlett.
