About 

I am interested in an established company to invest my time with and grow in the field of Architecture. My interest over the recent years has been specializing in presentations, schematic designs and working with clients to help develop the best solutions that work for them. I have acquired a great deal of knowledge over the years as a CAD Manager either setting up or conforming to standards. I have also received the title as BIM Coordinator at a previous job analyzing models using mainly Navisworks to produce a level 500 model.
I am also capable to assist or be in charge of producing presentations in various formats depending on individual clienteles needs. Either building models, Creating 3D Modeling images rendered in 3D Max, Sketchup, Revit. Producing videos for presentations through editing and motion graphics is also one of my specialties. I am a LEED Green Associate and currently studying for the ARE exams, which I hope to be licensed sometime next year.
