Piscataway, NJ, US



I received my Bachelor of Architecture degree from Temple University in 1988, and subsequently went to work for the Newark Board of Education in Newark, NJ, as Project Coordinator.  My primary responsibilities were to manage in-house construction projects in existing school buildings.

My next assignment was working with Adventus II, Inc., working in association with Turner Construciton Co. at various locations, including Lucent Technologies in Holmdel, NJ, and at the New Jersey Institute of Technology campus in Newark, NJ for 6 years as Project Engineer.

My past experience demonstrates a 20-plus year history of managing multiple projects for commercial, residential and institutional clients, with a wide variety of budgets and project requirements.
As construction manager and project engineer, I have demonstrated and enhanced my skills in budgeting, procurement, estimating, scheduling and coordinating overlapping projects.  In addition, my experience and skill as a licensed architect give me a unique perspective in project management with the ability to manage projects from both the designer’s and contractor’s “point of view”.
