Michael DiSalvatore is a graduate of Wentworth Institute of Technology, having received a Masters in Architecture. He is currently looking to become a registered architect, while simultaneously working in project management. He wants to study in construction and business and some day open a design firm.
His passion for design is not restricted to architecture, but also in furniture, interior, or industrial design. His open mind, hobbies, and practice give him the background he needs in order to accomplish his goal of becoming a successful architectural planner.
Free time is something he will take full advantage of. Whatever the occasion, a new inspiration is always found to enlighten his design consciousness. Whether it's indoors playing guitar or painting, or outdoors for a round of golf or surfing. Having a wide variety of hobbies keeps the brain entertained and the body happy, producing and even greater development of awareness.
