About 

I am an architecture and construction talented young professional with a master in Project Management by the Business Engineering School La Salle in Barcelona (Spain). Currently earning a Master's Degree in Construction Management at NYU (New York). I am able to offer  methodological strong background in technical architecture, quality, and site management to help to achieve during execution process the final product in the same conditions as it was though.

I have worked as a Junior Construction Manager and as an Assistant Project Manager in GCA Architects for 3 years. I developed tasks and improved skills such as managing, budgeting, estimating, planning, scheduling and monitoring projects through all the construction phases. In this period, I had the opportunity to meet great professionals to whom I learnt several important things. Most of these professionals are valued hard working architects with an excellent eye for interior design and site management.

Due to my Architecture and Construction background, and more recent Master in Project Management, I am really interested in management aspects of construction in order to find ways for both subjects to intertwine. Currently, I am pursuing to achieve the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification by the PMI. That is why I am particularly drawn to the project management and construction process in terms of time, costs and quality; from inception to completion. I have actual good experience in architectural construction field, which has always been my passion, and I am very comfortable working in all kind of construction and civil projects.

I consider myself a proactive, committed, dedicated and an organized methodic professional, perfectly suitable for different roles and versatile positions.

I have a comprehensive knowledge of the core concepts and strategies of green built environment according to LEED basis. I know the necessary software to develop the job such as AutoCad, Revit, Rhino, Microsoft Office including MS Project and Primavera and all Adobe tools. I have an advanced English level. Moreover, my first languages are Spanish and Catalan and I also speak French and Portuguese.
