Brooklyn, NY, US



I am an energetic and self motivated architectural designer with 6 years of experience.  I have worked on numerous projects in the Upper West Side Historic District, including the Dwight School and the West End Collegiate Church.  For these projects I was tasked with creating presentation and material boards for LPC.  As with all projects that I have worked on, I was also tasked with gathering field measururements and creating accurate drawings of the existing field conditions, and developing the working drawings.  

My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work is done accurately and to the highest possible standard.  I am very familiar with all aspects of drawing preparation, including permit drawing production for DOB and full sets of construction documents for projects of various scope and program.  I have great verbal and written communication skills which has allowed me to excel with consultant coordination and client interaction.  I am a well rounded designer with job-site experience as well as very strong computer and exemplary CAD skills.
