I earned my Bachelors in Architecture from The City college of New York. As an architecture student, I worked on a product development team, drafting architecture sketches, 3D drawings as well as animation and creating real-world models. While studying architecture, I also worked at Faulding Architecture, where I gained valuable architecture skills. In this role, I draft and help out with offices duties. After school I work at Urbahn Architects, where I work full time as a junior architect. In where, I learned how to put together a set of construction documents, how to coordinate drawings, how to do presentations, and build models. After Urbahn Architects, I worked in Kenneth Park Architects as an intermediate architect. In this company, I work with retail jobs in which, I coordinate from beginning to end of a project which I was able to work with different consultants. I gained lots of experience by working with my last two position. I am currently working in Avant Guards in which I am a project manager. My duties are to produce and get shop drawings approve. After shop drawings are approve, I need to make sure everything gets fabricated according to approve shop drawings.
