I advanced my drawing abilities while attending Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, where the curriculum included animation, photography and various CAD programs. I had the opportunity to utilize my knowledge and skills while I was preparing my portfolio. Before graduating from High School, I successfully completed many projects that reflect on my love of the art.
While studying in College, I focused more on producing forms and designing buildings. During my internship in architectural firms, I learned the art and science of building design, developing concepts into images and plans for building construction. I had the chance to be exposed to the concepts of overall aesthetics and look of a building/structure in relation to the purpose it serves, functionality, safety and cost effectiveness to economically suit the budget.
Working in Design Studios gave me the opportunity to work with companies who create experiential environments such as 4D theaters and traction theme parks producing work varying from graphic design packages to construction drawings.
I earned my Bachelors Degree in Southern California Institute of Architecture. I received extensive training from some of the most experienced professionals in the field of Architecture. I gained valuable experience by taking the challenges and devoting many hours to meet their expectations in completing the projects before the deadlines. I performed on projects that required creative thinking and attention to detail. While working on the projects, I gave equal importance to the foundation of the structure and it's design. I managed to meet all the necessary requirements by remaining dedicated to the theory of Architecture.
My goal is to work with motivated Architectural Design professionals on projects that will give me the opportunity to share my ideas, express my vision and enhance my ability to create.
