About 

Architecture is not only my profession, it is my passion. I have worked for more than ten years in a variety of settings both in New York and in numerous countries around the world, with a vast range of projects and programs of varying scales, which include residential, commercial, and hospitality, among others.  

The described work was performed for high-end clientele with whom I interacted directly.  In this process, I have been instrumental in obtaining and finalizing large contracts.  I have significant experience working as a team member, as well as leading teams of architects and consultants to meet deadlines and collaborate on projects.  I am well used to working under pressure and guiding others to do the same, without compromising quality.
