I am currently working at Mark Anthony Architecture & Design producing conceptual designs through construction documents for all scales of commercial and residential projects. For the last two years I have been the main contact for any NYRising questions at our small firm. I have handled over 150 house raise and repair cases including site inspection, field verification, conceptual plans, construction documents, scoping requirements, quantity analysis, and submission to DoB and NYRising.  I have most recently been apart of the NYC BiB program; rebuilding and raising homes in Brooklyn after Super Storm Sandy.


Prior to entering the professional field, I graduated with honors from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.  While in school, I maintained a 3.73 GPA and was presented with the Achievement in Academic Excellence and Pratt Circle Awards.  


I am currently looking for working towards the LEED accreditation and the architecture licensure exams. I have currently finished the required minimum IDP credits and 6 of the 7 architecture review examinations, with the final test scheduled for December 7, 2015.
