About

Website Objective:

A place to unite my images and interests in architecture, cinema, people, photography and urban planning. I have spent a number of years traveling, living, studying and researching throughout Italy and areas of the Mediterranean.

Field of Study:

I am a project architect at KSS Architects in Princeton, New Jersey. I am also an instructor of architecture/urban studies.  Presently, I mentor inner city high school students in an after school program, ACE, focusing on the fields of architecture, construction and engineering.

Education:

Syracuse University – M.Arch

Mary Washington College  – B.A. Italian language/culture B.A. Art History

Continuing Research:

Utilizing Italian cinematography, I continue to explore scale and the relationship of the individual in urban environment. In Spring of 2012, I presented my research entitled, “Utilizing images from Francesco Rosi’s Le mani sulla citta to analyze building speculation” at the Conference for Modern Italian Cinema at Indiana University. My presentation at St. John’s University in NYC entitled,  “Re-Presenting the Theme of Alienation in Antonioni’s L’Eclisse,” focused on my exploration of the sense of alienation the Esposizione Universale Roma (EUR, originally called E42) section of Rome exudes as a space in the movie L’Eclise, when filmed through Antonioni’s lens.
