About 

I'm a recent graduate with my Masters in Architecture from California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo.  I come from a diverse background, having grown up on construction sites.  I have also worked electrical engineering with some mechanical engineering through high school and into college.  I'm eager to learn new skills and practices and I am highly adaptable to new situations.
