I am an avid backpacker, cyclist, and kayaker and my professional goal is to facilitate the creation of dynamic and vibrant communities.
I completed my professional degree in Architecture at Drexel University, specializing in sustainable housing, transportation, and the social study of science and technology. At Drexel, I served as Vice President of Drexel Smart House, a student-led technology incubator for sustainable building technologies.
After working as an architectural designer, I completed a professional Master of Science in Urban Planning at Columbia University, focusing on housing, community development, and sustainable urbanism.
I spent the summer of 2012 at Singularity University as a teaching fellow. In this role I coached 2 international teams focused on incubators for premature children and mobile microtasks.
I’m currently providing consulting services to a technology startup based in New York City and providing advice on ux design, market research, and business pitching to teams in the US and Europe.
My personal research focuses on: cohousing, neighborhood change, networks, sensors, and design pedagogy.
