New Orleans, LA, US



I have recently finished my last Architects Registration Examination. NCARB has already approved my IDP and ARE and has sent my certificate to the State Architects Licensure Board of Pennsylvania. I will be seeking reciprocal registration in Louisiana once I have received my initial license.

My wife and I have purchased a house in Metairie, LA and will be relocating from Philadelphia, PA this month (May 2016).

I pride myself on my ability to learn and adapt quickly to situations with clients, consultants, software programs, etc.

My work experience thus far has been primarily in single- and multi-family residential architecture, however, I do have some experience in a wide variety of occupancy types.
