My passion for engagement within the profession has resulted in a variety of productive developments and explorations through architecture, arts, sculpture and construction. Recent in-depth engagement within European offices has allowed exposure to stronger conceptual and realized frameworks with large projects of great complexity. Within a variety of development or construction phases I’ve had a special areas of focus while maintaining integral computer modeling support for the team and the projects. In addition to this my professional experience includes a range of conceptual design in competition phases thereby possessing the ability to be an asset in a variety of phases. With successful completion of the 5 year professional Bachelor of Architecture program at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York I've performed as design critic at higher-level undergraduate and graduate architecture studios as well as actively participating in freelance projects. Continual investment of expertise within computer technologies and fabrication methods has advanced my knowledge and capacity that I choose to perform
