I am a registered architect and Certified Passive House Consultant currently providing architectural design services in the commercial and custom residential sectors. I am also an instructor of interior design at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I teach history, drawing, 3-dimensional design, computer graphics, materials and finishes, and building systems.
