I studied architecture at Columbia University and the University of Waterloo. I'm very interested in using innovative environmental systems to push architectural design . I participated in the Columbia Buildings Intelligence Project during grad school and then interned at Transsolar after I graduated. I now work for Behnisch Architekten in Boston.
