I recently joined Columbia University's prestigious GSAPP as a 2018 candidate for the M.S Real Estate Development program. I have contributed to development from an architecture perspective during my time at at Pickard Chilton Architects, and learned what role effective branding and marketing has while I was the 3D Director at The Seventh Art. I am excited to synthesize this first-hand experience working along the periphery of development and plan to provide a holistic perspective to the development industry.
Long-term, I desire to establish a research center and consultancy which will combine all disciplines necessary to successful planning and development. I envision an inter-disciplinary team which can holistically diagnose a city and propose treatments, similar to the medical profession. This organization would rely on specialists in finance, planning, architecture, and more, to combine their findings and prescribe tailored treatments.
