About 

   I am an architect with 7+ years of experience in both the fields of architecture and solar photovoltaics. For the past 3 1/2 years I have been working in the solar industry and have had the chance to design and manage projects ranging from small residential arrays to multimillion dollar solar power plants. My previous training and experience as an architect put me in a unique position to truly take charge in this rapidly growing green market and I look forward to continued success in the solar field. However, I also thrive on adaptability. I am a context driven architect with a passion for sustainable design as well as a detail oriented problem solver who enjoys finding new ways to utilize his talents.
   I am currently finishing up my Architectural Registration Exams and looking for full time employment in an inventive firm with a progressive outlook and exposure to new learning opportunities. I am constantly looking for new challenges and I welcome any opportunity to bring my experience to the table while continuing to broaden my skill set. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason. I look forward to further discussing my qualifications in person.

Best Regards,
