About 

I am a graduate of architecture and a licensed general contractor with the past five years of my life spent doing facilities operations management. I have experience in managing, planning and analyzing the needs for the overall operations of a facility. I am able to switch back and forth between analytical and creative thinking depending on whichever is necessary. My disciplined leadership style compliments my technical abilities allowing me to take control of the bigger picture.
