New York, NY, US



My experience is rooted in the technical aspects of architecture. I’m self-motivated and enjoy tackling the challenges of delivering a cohesive project that surpasses client expectations within budget while meeting key milestones. I thrive in fast paced environments, work well on a team, and believe that communication is key to the success and development of innovative design that shapes our future. I have a passion for sustainable design and am always looking for ways to develop that knowledge base. 

I'm currently in the process of pursuing licensure with three ARE exams completed:

•Construction Documents & Services

•Programming, Planning & Practice

•Site Planning & Design
