Hi and thanks for viewing my profile!

I am a New York City based Senior Structural Engineer with a vast array of technical experience acquired from the diverse projects I have been involved in across the globe.

Graduating with a First Class Honors in Structural Engineering with Architecture from University College Dublin, I went on to publish work on modal properties of light-weight structures at the International EVACES conference. I then moved to New York where I have been primarily based since graduating. I hold a professional engineering license in New York State and Ireland.

I am have been lucky to work on a wide range of project types which has helped me to develop several expertise as a designer. Early in my career I worked on high-rise design in the US before acquiring a experience in several long span structures and stadia. I have also worked on several mixed use developments at locations in the US and Europe. During these projects I worked in a heavily technical role focusing in the structural design and analysis aspects of the project, in addition to ideation and concept development with the architect.

I have worked on many small scale projects also and look forward to sharing my expertise with you if offered the opportunity.

Please review my portfolio further and feel free to reach out with any questions.

Thanks!

James
