About 

I graduated from Woodbury Universities, Bachelors of Architecture program in May of 2014. I have since specialized in Architectural renderings, physical and 3 dimensional model making, commercial prototyping, 3d printing, jewelry design production and architectural construction documents. I am a highly driven first generation American with a humbling background stemmed from a family of builders specializing in a wide array of construction trades (Carpenters, Plumbers, Electricians etc.). My work experience has guided me to become a strong service oriented professional with a keen eye to detail. My distinct experience between the service industry, not for profit community development sector, overt mechanical expressionism and design-build realm have set me up with a unique set of skills.
