About 

I have a 5-year Bachelor of Architecture degree from New Jersey Institute of Technology (AIA’s accredited institute). I have over 6 years of experience in high-end residential, restoration and rehabilitation, restaurant, educational and commercial projects. These projects located both in New Jersey and New York metropolitan areas. I am also OSHA certified.

I am self-motivated; highly detail oriented, very organized, and open to different types of design facets. I enjoy working in a collaborative environment; have great experience in site visits, and communication skills and act as a liaison with client, manufacturers and other consultants involved. I am a great team player and a reliable and dependable team leader. I am familiar and very comfortable running and maintaining multiple projects simultaneously starting from schematic level to construction-built phase. I have experience in Quality Control, Estimation, and Procurement as well.

I am proficient in Revit Architecture and Revit Structures, Risa 3D (BIM programs), Rhino, SketchUp, Architecture Desktop (Auto CAD), Xatimate, Adobe Suite, and Microsoft Suites.
My salary is negotiable, if considered. I have a valid Driver's License and am a legal resident of US. If you have any questions and/or comments, feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail.
