In my most recent role as a Management / Senior Director at Adjaye Associates, I led multiple projects from concept to construction, including residential towers, commerical interiors, adaptive reuse, K-12 schools, and private residences, all in the New York City region. With over 15 years of experience as a licensed architect, I have developed a strong portfolio of diverse typologies and scales including museums, commerical towers, schools and residential high-rises, reflecting my passion for creating innovative and impactful spaces no matter the program.
In addition to my design and technical skills, I also oversaw the office-wide project management and business development functions, focusing on contract negotiations, fee proposals, staff resource planning, hiring projections, and key internal initiatives. I leveraged my leadership, communication, and strategic thinking abilities to ensure the smooth and successful delivery of projects, as well as the growth and sustainability of the firm. I also participated in confidential competitions and RFP / RFQ submissions, demonstrating my creativity and competitiveness in the operations, management and business development side of the architectural industry.
