A native of Chicago, I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana with a Masters of Architecture. I predominantly worked as a project manager over the past 35 years and have been fortunate to be part of various significant projects throughout my career that span across the globe. I have now transitioned from corporate life to that of teaching and plan to share my experiences in the workplace with my students in the hope that it will provide them a sense of excitement and interest in the fields of architecture and engineering.
