I’m an architect with over 20 years of experience, mostly in high-end residential projects. My most substantial and latest body of work has been during my long tenure at Alexander Antonelli Architect, NYC. As Senior Project Architect, I led projects of various scopes and styles, and through all phases. Recent work included the construction of a new Shingle-Style artist’s studio, the renovation of a San Remo apartment, and the designs for an Upstate ski lodge and a Shore beach home. 

Work also includes exposure to multi-dwelling housing, both new-construction + adaptive-reuse; master planning for additions to a Neo-Georgian manor/events space; and feasibility studies for the construction of new apartments for a medical university. 

I earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University, and am a Registered Architect in NJ. I count versatility in design, rigor in detailing and a hands-on approach to construction administration as my strengths.
