About 

I WAS BORN & RAISED IN DAYTON, NJ AND ATTENDED PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL WERE I BEGAN MY INVESTIGATION IN DESIGN & DRAFTING. I ALWAYS HAD AN OBSESSION WITH DRAWING BUILDINGS & PLACES AND PLAYING WITH LEGOS AS A CHILD. I DECIDED TO PURSUE THIS INTEREST, AND LEARN & GROW EACH DAY FROM THE CHOICE TO PURSUE ARCHITECTURE. SINCE I HAVE BEEN IN THE DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY I HAVE WORKED ON A VARIETY OF BUILDING TYPES, MOST OF THEM BEING IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR FOR HIGH-END & LUXURY CLIENTÈLE.
