Culinary: Cilantro With Ginger

Cilantro with Ginger

So many of you know, I am an Architect, professor, and food lover. Based in Boston, from Jersey. This is my new platform for a test kitchen of recipes for my up and coming cookbook, as well as any great restaurants/bars I find along the way. I’m trying to help students and recent grads cook delicious, inexpensive, and innovative food.

Although I have been on a very long hiatus from Archeyes, I will be back on track posting more soon.  Archeyes will still be a platform for Architectural expression and experiences.

Teaching: Arch 155: Student Blogs

I am teaching Freshman year studio at Wentworth Institute of Technology this fall.

"Arch155 Design Principles l:
This course will focus on freehand drawing, utilizing drawing as a tool for the exploration of the built environment. Drawing as a method of “seeing”, the sketchbook as a recording device, and drawing as a tool in the design process will be studied. Weekly exercises will guide the course and weekly seminars will integrate the materials covered in ARCH115 Survey of Architecture I. Co-requisite: Arch115 Survey of Architecture I."

Catching Up

So once again I have fallen behind on the blog.  I am working as a Architectural Designer now at a Design/Build firm.  I have been creating renderings for submissions and proposals, as well as some CAD work.

I have also been continuing on my cookbook, as well as starting to create jewelry again.  I created a simple pair of earrings last night, and wore them to work today.  While we were out to lunch, the deli owner asked where I purchased my earrings, when I told her I designed and made them myself, she asked if I could make her a pair to match some jewelry she had... I guess wearing my jewelry is the best way to advertise!

I will post images of my recent designs soon.
