I am an architect with 19 years international design experience since I have worked in high-end design and architectural firms in Mexico City, New York, Miami and currently in the Middle East.
At present, I have been involved in Design review process of various multi-million dollar projects in the Middle East, including Education City in Qatar and Al Mashtal complex in Abu Dhabi, this range from the conceptual design all through the tender documentation. In my previous firm in Miami Florida, I was involved in the conceptual design, master planning and schematic design of a new Hotel, Golf resort and convention Centre in Islamabad Pakistan as well as the conceptual and schematic design, and design development of a 180 million dollar shopping mall in San Salvador with Ricardo Legorreta. With the firm of Arquitectonica International, I was involved in the new Sheraton Hotel and Convention Centre in downtown Phoenix Arizona as well as the new Miami International Airport project and the new federal courthouse-building project in downtown Miami. During this time, I had the opportunity to participate in several facets of the project, including conceptual design, schematic design, design development, construction documents and the business development of the project interacting directly with clients and contractors. Before moving to Florida I was involved in several high-end high-rise projects in the New York City area and the 5 boroughs.
My background is strongly international, as I have lived in 4 countries throughout Europe and America, and I speak three languages fluently. I also believe that my ability to integrate into various cultures as well as my design and construction experience is a strong asset that I can bring into a company.
