Nashua, NH, US



I recently completed my Master's at Boston Architectural College studying Sustainable Design. My these there focused on Disaster Preparation, Response, and Recovery through Resilient Thinking.

I recieved my Bachelor of Science from the University of Hartford in 2006 and a Masters in Architecture from Louisiana State University in 2009. While at LSU, I worked for the Louisiana Office of State Buildings for about a year working on various projects for buildings owned by the state. After completing my Masters I passed the LEED AP exam. In the fall of 2009 and Spring of 2010 I instructed an Architectural History course at Hesser College in Nashua, NH and in Portsmouth NH. I have also worked on a range of freelance projects and competitions while developing my portfolio and website. I recently sat on the jury for the International Design Competition in Nashua, NH. Presently, I am looking for an internship position with an architectural office. Outside of the design field, I have coached high school track and field in Milford, NH from 2010-2012
