Boston, MA, US



I'm a graduate from Northeastern University starting my career in architecture. I began at Leers Weinzapfel Associates, where I worked on two buildings on the UConn campus and a chiller plant at Ohio State University. My last semester challenged me to design a building with strong short-term energy performance and long-term adaptability in an extreme New England climate. I am fast with 3d modeling and can produce iterations rapidly, and I'm most interested in low-tech solutions that passively improve the performance of architecture. I'm a designer by nature and am interested in product design and manufacturing in addition to architecture, urban planning, sustainable design and landscape architecture. I'm ultimately seeking leadership roles where I oversee and manage a team and work with clients and outside parties directly.
