Daniel Kaye is currently a designer working with the Transportation Architecture department at AECOM in Boston. He is a registered architect in the state of Massachusetts, and holds a Professional B.Arch degree from Syracuse University's School of Architecture, with a minor in Computer Science.

With a deep interest in architectural software, Daniel has a focus on how the analog and digital design tools used by architects can affect the outcome of the built environment.

Daniel has pass all 7 required AREs and completed all 5,400 IDP hours, and is in the process of applying for lisensure.

When not scribbling on trace or wrestling with Revit, Daniel can be found out-of-doors climbing rocks, biking, snowboarding or sketching, otherwise probably editing videos or coding while cooking something tasty.
