About 

For the past 12 years, I have a proven success record in project management and design, including programming, schematic design, design development, construction documents, and construction administration.  I am able to prioritize the needs of the client with the real-time goals of the project, and successfully liaise between various consultants.   I am proficient in AutoCAD 2017 and other required architecture programs.  By nature, I am highly organized, a team player, and able to handle multiple tasks simultaneously.
