About 

i've spent my career designing housing in the los ángeles area, sometimes building from the ground up, sometimes rehabbing existing or historic buildings. three projects i've worked on have won preservation awards from the los ángeles conservancy. i believe in the city -with its density, walkability and liveliness- both as a better environment for people to live in, and as a way to reduce our carbon footprint. i want to help make the city better and more efficient, and to help solve its affordability problems. i'm fluent in revit and archicad, i use artlantis for rendering, and i prepare my presentations in illustrator
