Served as the Executive Director of AIA Pittsburgh A Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for most of my career. At various times throughout my career I was involved with a number of citywide initiatives including Riverlife, the Pittsburgh Civic Design Coalition, the Mayor’s Task Force on Gaming, the New Idea Factory, and the revitalization efforts for the South Side through the Southside Local Development Corporation. I was the first Executive Director of Uptown Mt. Lebanon which was created to help revitalize the Washington Road Business District. I began my career as a banker with Mellon Bank.
I have served on both the Historic Preservation Board and the Planning Board in Mt. Lebanon.
