I am a designer with a bachelor's degree in architecture and a minor in sustainability and have worked on various projects that focus on high end residential and hospitality. I draw construction documents for new buildings in New York, as well as extensions or alterations to existing structures and assist on the restoration and conservation of old properties. 

As an emerging designer, I am always eager to immerse myself in a dynamic, fast-paced, and intensely collaborative environment that fosters creativity, innovation, and excellence. My goal is to design spaces that prioritize sustainability and embrace forward-thinking design principles that ultimately make a positive impact on the built environment.
