I have been in professional architecture practice since 1998. My work has covered a diverse range of project types including new commercial and institutional construction. I have been fortunate enough to participate on projects both within the private and public sector in the US and abroad. I have enjoyed these collaborations and I look forward to continuing in this professional trajectory.
My design and technical capabilities are very good. I can manage teams efficiently, and I am an able designer and detailer. I enjoy challenging projects on fast track schedules. I am familiar with many office standards and procedures. My interests are in large scale interventions including institutional and public buildings, high rise office developments and corporate workplace.
I have honed management skills through all phases of design and contract documents. I often execute and manage CAD set-up’s, team assignments, and technical coordination with consultants. My work reflects a variety of design influences often employing novel programming and architectural detail solutions.
I have a history of working for large architecture firms and thrive in team environments. I am an effective writer and I am able with multiple software platforms for effective presentations. I am fluent in English and Spanish.
