About 

When I was a kid I fell in love with basketball, hand drawing, construction, engineering and architecture. A hunger for solving architectural/design and also to identify engineering problems set the path to pursue a dual training in both professions. I am a team member that works as the “Master Builder”, intermediary, advisor, translator and designer, between both professionals. My first professional opportunity arrived a year before graduation which allowed me to be exposed to put in practice a wide variety of skills set. Throughout my professional career I have acquired experience in operation procedures, designing, remodels, construction documents, presenting and helping clients. These great experiences have opened the doors to other opportunities and set the tone of my career. Also, I’ve been able to use architectural design skills in the transition from 2D CAD to BIM, working directly with clients assessing their needs, implementing creative skills for design development. Also, solving design and technical problems, creating marketing materials and combining both architectural and engineering knowledge to make more cohesive proposals. I am currently pursuing a Master of Architecture at Boston Architecture College.

• Problem solver assessing, learning, and applying theoretical, practical knowledge and excellent analytical skills.
• Easy going and great at working with other team members corroboratively as well as embracing diversity. Very quick at understanding and contributing to the teams goals, and fitting in very well as a team player.
• Excellent at listening to the issues in order to understand the challenges and then implement solutions.
• Great tech skills, firm grasp of many technologies and how they can be best utilized as design tools.
• Incredibly personable, polite and responsible with a great attitude and work ethic. Highly motivated and a self-starter

Education 

Boston Architectural College (BAC), Boston, MA, US, MArch, Architecture

The BAC's School of Architecture offers a Master of Architecture degree program that is professionally accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board to prepare students to become licensed architects.

The hallmark of this degree program is concurrent design practice and academic study. Students work in classrooms, in communities, and in local firms to examine the social and cultural contexts of their work. As they advance, students develop a personal design philosophy and methods of working while mastering structures and environmental systems. Evidence of learning and competencies in both practice and academic study is evaluated through portfolio. All graduate students complete a three-semester-long design thesis process to explore an idea that has personal significance and larger value to the community and to the discipline of architecture.
