About 

I am a registered Architect in New York State, and a LEED-accredited professional.  After 10 years in Central Asia, Washington DC, and Israel, I returned to New York City.  It would be a great privilege for me to visit Studio Gang’s New York office, and learn about opportunities at your firm.

Please allow me to share some of my professional background.  I have worked internationally at Aedas Kazakhstan (Chief Architect) and at Moshe Zur Architects and Planners in Tel Aviv (Project Architect), and in the U.S. at Kohn Pedersen Fox in New York City (Architectural Designer) and at Shinberg Levinas in Washington DC (Project Architect).  My professional experience spans U.S. and international markets.  I have led and participated in a wide range of projects including in the mixed-use super-tall sector, health care, education (elementary and special education schools), institutional (embassy), residential, office, and campus (pharmaceutical and oil and gas sectors).  Prior to joining the architectural profession, I have worked in the finance field.

I am creative, motivated and energetic. I have a strong work ethic and superb organizational skills.  I am proficient in Revit and other design software.  Please refer to the attached resume and portfolio for more detail regarding my professional and educational history.
