As a Brooklyn-based designer, my practice has been to apply theoretical rigor to constructible form.  This approach to my work has led to professional experiences with both large teams and small entrepreneurial start-ups.

I am not intimidated by fussy clients, not by limited means.  These obstacles are problems that I believe can lead to better solutions in any situation.

Please contact me for an interview or to learn more about my work.  



Institute for Building Technology & Safety, Brooklyn, NY, US, Design Specialist

IBTS is a non-profit associated with the Build it Back program in NYC. Build it Back has a mission to restore middle and low-income homes damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

In my position I have worked with Project Managers, prepared workflows, and done on-site visits with homeowners. On these visits, I work with the homeowner to explain the program, assist the IBTS in project scoping, and design small areas of the homes, as required.
