Biography

Construction contract administration, architecture, leadership. These are my passions!

With over 20 years' experience, I focus on construction coordination and Contract Administration of large scale, complex, high-profile construction and civil infrastructure projects. I have worked extensively in projects located in Toronto, New York City and Las Vegas, in collaboration with some of the most renowned architectural firms in North America today – firms like Studio 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, and coordinating construction requirements, 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 striving for quality output and a continuous lookout for cost savings. I am the lead for contract administration during the construction phase of projects I'm involved in, 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 to reach successful 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, with a previously granted TN (NAFTA) Visa.
