Architecture is my passion. Real estate is my livelihood. Both have been a part of my life in some form since my youth. My unique skills come from working in real estate for over a decade, and before then in architecture and design. I have been able to combine my passion for design and problem-solving skills needed to serve my clients with intelligence, savvy, and hard work. From an early age, my parents put me to work renovating and fixing successive homes and rental properties. I learned firsthand how home-improvement and renovating properties could fulfill the love of labor and make for profitable business. Since those days my brother and I (tech editor at This Old House) have bought, renovated, and sold multiple properties together in Boston and Brooklyn in pursuit of shelter, design, and business. Born and raised in Washington, DC and VA, I studied Art & Architecture History at William & Mary, and Architecture at MIT, learning design and marketing in the architecture field.
