A graduate of Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Shah brings over fifteen years of experience as a studio artist, residential and institutional designer, and project manager for a variety of design and construction projects. Prior to his appointment, Shah most recently managed design and construction projects for Crosby Real Estate where he was responsible for representing the homeowner through all phases of construction from pre-design through project closeout.
Previously, Shah exercised his architectural training at Gilman Guidelli & Bellow Company, Marc Truant & Associates, Anmahian Winton Architects, and Hashim Sarkis Architecture & Urban Design as a project manager and project designer.
