As an Architect with over 25 years of experience, I have cultivated the technical and managerial
skills necessary to produce a quality project. My credentials include being a registered architect in
New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Iowa,
Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. I also hold the prestigious NCARB (National Council of
Architectural Registration Boards) certification.

My previous positions involved constant coordination with my clients and consultants to insure
positive project progression, which inevitably has led to successful ventures as well as buildings of
quality design. My familiarity with Sustainable Design, BIM, IPD, and the Design Build process,
allows me to produce a quality building in a 21st century manner.
