About 

I am an architectural designer relocating to NYC in May 2019. As a 6th generation architect in my family and with a passion for architecture and design – I am looking to take what I have gained in knowledge and experience in the past six years and apply it in a position where I can contribute to a company and a team, make the right design decisions, and continue to grow as an architect, designer, and human being.
