About 

Recent graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn with a M.Arch. degree. I studied architecture for eight years, and have been working in the field for two years. Although competent with a large array of tools and knowledgeable about the construction of buildings, I consider my most important skills to be my "eye" for design and the ease with which I interact with people.
