I am a Designer and Photographer at Peter Gisolfi Associates in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.  I graduated from The Bernard and Anne School Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York in 2012 with an M.Arch degree.

I became a LEED Accredited Professional in June 2009, before entering school.  I studied geology and environmental science in college, so sensible, intrinsic sustainable design is extremely important to me.

I am constantly pushing myself to improve in all areas of architecture, be they design sense or technical ability.  My programs of choice are Rhino (and Grasshopper), but I am proficient in AutoCAD and Revit as well.  I see a permanent place for advanced computational and parametric design in the future of architecture - not just for form generation, but for efficient and practical design and construction.  It's a growing field of which I would like to be an integral part.  Furthermore, I believe in the virtue of total design, from the overall form of a building down to the typography used in signage.  Sometimes, it's the little things that can make all the difference in a building's success.
