Bio

Sheryl is a licensed Architect in the State of New York with over 12 years of experience designing, detailing and managing residential, civic, and commercial projects in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Texas, and Massachusetts, many of which have been published and honored with awards. Sheryl received her Masters of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas Christian University, and also attended Kenyon College. She has studied art, architecture and humanities abroad in Hungary and Italy. 

Sheryl has been consulting and practicing independently in the New York area since 2014. She previously held positions at Garrison Architects and Specht Architects in New York, and at Page and Michael Hsu Office of Architecture in Austin. She is NCARB certified and has extensive experience with LEED accreditation, NYC DOB approvals and NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission Review processes. She has participated in collaborative projects with the Architectural League and the Center for American Architecture and Design, and has also served as a guest critic on studio reviews at Pratt and NYIT.

Sheryl’s path to practicing architecture started by joining her love of drawing and painting with her knack for spatial logic and problem solving. Prior to becoming an architect, she wielded her Fine Arts degree by spending two years as a designer, painter and fabricator of large-scale art glass installations at a preeminent Liturgical Arts studio in Texas. There she was introduced to architectural restoration, detailing and drafting, and decided to pursue architecture. As an architect, she carries forward her love of drawing and craft— not as a vehicle of personal expression but as a mode of thinking through and presenting elegant solutions to real-world client needs. She is most passionate about projects which integrate architecture and art in the service and support of community.
