I am a Project Manager at The Renzo Piano Building Workshop where current work includes the Manhattanville Campus of Columbia University. I also serve as Secretary of the Board for the Leo Katz Foundation, a not for profit organization dedicated to sharing the prolific works of artist and author Leo Katz. Current personal projects include a series of theoretical houses that draw inspiration from John Hejduk’s Masques and Jorge Luis Borges, as well as the continuation of my library research documenting the sequences of space from the outside world into reading rooms.

I have over seven years of experience working as a designer on technically complex institutional and public buildings in New York City. Recent projects include work for the New York Public Library, New York University, and other institutions. My Personal drawings have been the subject of solo exhibitions in New York and Europe. I graduated as Degree Marshall from the Bachelors of Architecture program at Cornell University with a Minor in Philosophy and Concentration in Architectural Theory and studied in the UK as a Fulbright Summer Institute Participant.

Printed portfolios are available upon request, and you can download my resume PDF here. I am always interested in new design projects. Thank you for visiting, and please do not hesitate to contact me.
