In 2016, I received my architect’s license from the state of New York after receiving my Masters of Architecture degree from Columbia University in 2012. Having been an Electrical Engineer in the past, my computer skills and technical knowledge have provided me a complimentary skillset in my architectural career. For the past several years, I’ve been working as a project architect at ODA in the construction administration capacity.
