Michael Robert Cabrera

New York, NY, US



I always had an obsession with drawing buildings & places and playing with Legos as a child. I decided to pursue this interest, and learn & grow each day from the choice to pursue architecture. Since I started working in the design & construction industry I have collaborated on a variety of building types, most of them being in the private sector for high-end & luxury clientele.
