Transitioning from the world of engineering to architecture, Erika Chirafisi has joined the MSA Architects team as a Project Designer. She will be instrumental on our Central Ohio projects in addition to providing support to our design team. With over five years of experience in product design and development, Erika uses this technical knowledge to enhance her design solutions. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University and a Master of Architecture from Virginia Tech.

A native of Columbus, Erika recently moved back to the area after living in Virginia for several years. She is rediscovering the various nuances of Columbus and particularly enjoys spending time in German Village. Outside of work, Erika holds a variety of interests including sketching, photography and running. A voracious reader, she tries to satiate her curiosity about her surroundings by picking up a good book every time she sees one. Traveling is also a big part of Erika’€™s life and she tends to draw her professional inspiration from her quests and experiences.
