About

"Not Built in a Day" is a personal blog of my musings on architecture, urbanism, and the built environment generally.  I also enjoy reviewing books, films, and exhibitions, and write travel descriptions from time to time.

I am an architect and a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP) with a Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) degree.  Currently I work on historic preservation, higher education, and K-12 public school projects.  While at GSAPP, I was the curator of the Slide & Video Library, the school's teaching and research image collection.  I also have a BA in Art History and in Philosophy from Duke, where my undergraduate research thesis concerned medieval monastic architecture in the city of Rome.  My work experience is in architecture, construction administration, research, and teaching.

I am a LEED® AP BD+C.
