Into cycling and exploring the expansive city of LA on two wheels, I love getting outdoors any chance I'm not practicing or thinking architecture!
I'm currently looking for a new full-time architectural opportunity, serving on the side to support myself, attending lectures to keep my mind fresh, and designing lighting fixtures to maintain my creative brain.
I am also taking courses in 3D Autocad, Revit and 3DSMax to sharpen my skills, shortcuts and become more efficient in the trade.
