I’ve just graduated from Columbia University’s M.S Architecture and Urban Design program and have experience in a range of capacities in the Urban Realm and Architecture landscape. Prior to my studies, I was a practicing (licensed) architect in Israel, where I managed a wide range of projects including: several master plans, rezoning, municipal design guidelines, research and documentation, mix-use of commercial and residential, and multi-story residential buildings. 

Eager to learn and to work hard trying to make an impact on how we design cities. Looking to find a position which suits both my skills and my passions as an Urban Designer and Architect.
