Biography

Hello,

Here's a little bit about me: Construction contract administration, architecture, leadership. These are my passions!

I have worked in the architecture industry for 20 years, with a focus on construction coordination and Contract Administration. I have been involved in several large scale, complex, high-profile construction and civil infrastructure projects in Ontario, New York City and Las Vegas, in collaboration with some of the most renowned architectural firms in North America today – firms like Studio Daniel Libeskind, SOM, Moshe Safdie, Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, Maki and Associates, Gensler and Rockwell Group. Extensive involvement in four multi-billion dollar projects has allowed me to work effectively in fast paced environments, ensuring construction requirements were met, both from an architectural/engineering stand point, as well as from a contractual aspect. I provide clients with a focus on achieving intended milestones, while ensuring expected quality output and a continuous lookout for cost savings. With the exception of the John Sopinka Courthouse, have been the lead for contract administration during the construction phase of all projects, including resolution of changes, Contractor claims and critical issues. My leadership nature has enabled me to fill in a mentorship role and have a key participation in liaison relationships with Owners and firm executives to reach solutions to complex issues. Through involvement in several security sensitive projects, I have maintained security clearance for confidential contracts in Canada and the United States, as I am a US Customs and Border Protection GOES member, and have previously been granted a TN (NAFTA) Visa.
