Harmony Township, NJ



With eleven years of unique experience in the Architecture/Construction fields, I have recently graduated from the New Jersey Institute of Technology with a Bachelor’s of Architecture, and am currently enrolled in IDP, while taking the ARE.  I have a proven background working with a custom home builder and general contractor, and as the Lead Architectural Designer for an architectural forensics firm.   This has allowed me to gain invaluable insight into how the success of a project depends on good design, detailing, material selection, quality construction documentation and construction administration.

My strengths include programming client needs, conceptual design, schematic design, and design development.  My extensive experience has equipped me with a uniquely strong ability to communicate with tradesmen, engineers, and clients. I also have successfully lead a team of Junior Architects and draftsmen, due to my knowledge of contracts and deliverables, knowldege of building codes, AutoCAD 2012, Revit 2010, Rhinocerous 4.0, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and Microsoft Office.

Successful interaction with customers has always been an important part of my professional life.   After graduating from high school I spent 4 years in the travel industry– as a sales representative for tour operators I preformed marketing presentations to travel agents and student groups, and I was responsible for making client reservations.   My passion, however, has always been architectural design and construction so I returned to college in pursuit of a career in architecture.  I graduated from the honors college Cum Laude. 

With the architectural skills that I possess, I hope to influence the community in a positive way through strong, practical, organic, and beautiful projects.
