Los Angeles, CA, US



I am a Los Angeles native and a licensed architect with over 18 years of experience primarily in multi-family housing and historic preservation. I have had my own business since 2008 working primarily on permit expediting, code compliance and residential renovation work.  My career in architecture started in historic preservation as an intern with Levin and Associates in high school.  I completed a BFA in Photography from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and a M.Arch. from UC Berkeley.  

Since 2002, I have worked on multi-family housing projects—market rate, low income and senior living. From 2005 to 2008, I worked at RNL Design and I was the project manager/designer/architect on the Belmont Village Westwood project-a high end senior living facility on Wilshire Boulevard at Warner.  Kate Diamond was the lead designer and I worked with her from concept design on thru the construction management of the project.  I am also LEED accredited and worked on LEED projects at RNL Design.
