New York, NY, US



I have six years of experience as an architectural designer, including three years of office experience in New York City.

The small size of my current firm has allowed me the opportunity to gain familiarity with all phases of project development. Frequent job site visits have also immersed me in the reality of designing for the “real world”, sharpening my attention for detail, expanding my understanding of budget management, and honing my interpersonal skills with everyone from clients to crew members.

Additionally, I hold a permanent resident authorization and am at the moment actively pursuing obtaining a New York architecture license.
