How long have you lived in NYC? 3.5 years

Why did you decide to move to NYC? As a licensed architect, New York City is one of the best places to be and work on projects for some of the most well known cultural institutions 

What is your favorite part about living in NYC? The parks and long walks along the Hudson River Park. 

What is your best UIUC memory? Sigma Chi was having a Toga Party and my roommate and I did not want to go out and buy sheets to make togas, so we decided after a boozy brunch we were going to pop into a hotel and get "new sheets for the bed". Mission Toga was a success! 

Why are you on the Metro NYC Illini board? I enjoy networking and meeting new people!
