I graduated with distinction from Southern California Institute of Architecture with a professional Bachelor degree in Architecture. Immediately after graduation I started working at Adamson Associates Inc. where I have quickly become the Revit expert. I have been responsible for exterior modeling and documentation of a Office HQ (concrete) and Annex (steel) buildings. After taking the project from late schematic design to end of construction documents over the course a 14 months I am currently looking for opportunities with greater responsibilities and project variety. I am working towards becoming licensed and wish to diversify and increase my knowledge and expertise.
The prior to Thesis I participated in Solar Decathlon 2013 as the Project Architect leading and working with a team through various schematic designs and looking at new technologies that directly influenced the end project. Ultimately I designed a skin shade structure system and built a full scale mock-up of the system with a close collaborator.
Using a simple pragmatic approach that develops a project based on a core conceptual design principle enables consistency in every detail and creates a comprehensive cohesive intelligent solution to every project. This and a near OCD attention to detail drives me to produce the best project I can.
Taking great pride in the production quality of all drawings, models and work. I use what ever tool is best and look for different and possibly better ways of doing things. I enjoy the physical world and love working in wood and metal when I have the time and this I feel enables me to have a different perspective that one does not get when only in the digital realm.
