New York, NY, US



I am a licensed architect passionate about sustainability and the influence good design has on everyday life. I love the fulfillment of working on projects and spaces that will truly benefit the occupant and add to, or gave back to, the surrounding environment. A self-starter, I am curious and motivated to learn new things: new design styles, new technological systems, and new representation techniques. Architecture intrigues me the most when it's understood in direct correlation to politics, art, community, and ecology. 

I am a 2008 graduate of Syracuse University School of Architecture. While at Syracuse, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy and surveyed traditional Italian architecture. This afforded me the amazing opportunity to travel throughout Europe and Egypt while experiencing different cities and cultures. Travel remains a great interest of mine, along with writing and music.
