Los Angeles, CA, US



I'm an architect who is dually interested in quality design and the economic and physical forces that shape our built environment. My experience in working as a design manager and project architect on boutique housing and hospitality projects, coupled with my interest and studies in real estate has afforded me the unique ability to approach and understand projects simultaneously from conceptual and realistic stances. Given the opportunity I am certain, I could put these interests and skills to good use in a conducive and challenging environment.

Though the firm was traditionally set up as a design-build practice primarily for luxury residential and commercial projects, it had recently undertaken its own set of developments and formed a separate development studio for this purpose. I got a chance to work in the development studio, focusing on high-end single-family residences currently in and coming out of development in West Los Angeles. During this time I also worked on evaluating options for projects that were set to head into construction in the coming months.
