About 

I've been practicing architecture for the last 17 years, I am an independent contractor at this time but I have experience in Hospitality, Retail, School K-12, telecommunication buildings, residential, and multifamily. I'm in the process of getting licensed in California just waiting to test on the California Supplemental, I am very experienced in AUTOCAD and worked on Sketchup and REVIT programs as well. I have been a project manager for the last 7 years, I love working with clients and consultants, I like to mentor newcomers and I LOVE Architecture and Sustainability issues! I practice yoga and love biking and hiking.
