I am currently a full-time student studying architecture at Orange Coast College. I am also a full-time land use/urban planner, a position I have held for the past eight (8) years. My background is in commercial construction, and I have worked in the field as a apprentice/journeyman carpenter for six (6) years prior to beginning my career as an urban planner. I am experienced in all aspects of construction and development, from both the commercial and residential sides of the business. In addition to school and work I am an avid volunteer, and serve as a crew leader for Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, which I have been involved with since 2005.
My current goal is to complete my undergraduate studies in architecture and civil engineering, and enter the field of architecture and design prior to graduation.
