About 

I am an architectural design professional dedicated to bringing creative ideas to life through the constructed form. Over the past 15 years, my experience and project involvement have been from initiation of the front-end planning process of a project, the concept of a design through building construction, and project closeout in Residential, Mixed-use design, Academic (K -12), institutional, corporate Interior, and development architecture. As a trained architect, I can work in any industry sector, and I am a capable leader who fosters collaborative relationships for successful project delivery. I bring a combination of design, presentation, technical skills, and construction management to any project, and I am confident that my expertise will be an asset to any team. I am seeking to establish a role where I can continue to expand my managing skills and provide practical answers to the spaces I design and manage.

I enjoy the challenge of working in different sectors of architecture and take pride in my contribution to this industry.
