Senior PA/PM with 10+ years of professional experience in all project phases from pre-design research to CA and client management.  I employ a generalist approach to the practice of architecture and construction with consistent application of design intent through final project delivery. Technical expertise, coordination and administration of concurrent projects are key skills in commercial/retail, mixed-use, hospitality, residential (single & multi-family) and cultural building types. Consultant supervision, value engineering, design-build strategies, and mentoring of junior staff are additional abilities.
