Registered Architect in the State of New York.

I grew up in New Jersey and graduated from NJIT with a Bachelor of Architecture degree.  I worked for several years with different firms in New Jersey, the most significant experience being with SSP Architectural Group in Bridgewater.  I worked on a variety of projects and handled many phases, from schematic design through construction administration and project completion.  In 2015, I took some personal time off in order to study for the ARE exams and to travel.  After returning from a long-term journey through Southeast Asia and Europe, I gained some Interior Design experience at Charles & Co Design Studio.

As a Project Associate at HLZA, I currently work on a variety of project types, including Historic Preservation, Facade Restoration, Forensic Investigations, Interior Design & Restoration, Feasibility Studies, Code Consulting / Plan Review, Physical Conditions Assessments, and Facade Inspections.
