About 

I have just about nine years of experience in residential, retail, leisure, office, and infrastructure projects, as project architect and assistant project manager in architecture/construction management firms in the U.S. and Europe.  

I have been charged with such responsibilities as project planning and design, production of construction documents, design team management, construction administration, construction site safety, survey/record of existing edifices, project presentations, and client/project meetings, among others.

In the last couple of years, I have earned more construction management experience by venturing out, together with a colleague, as a contractor for smaller renovation projects (commercial and residential). 

Throughout my experience, I have consolidated my skills as a creative, dynamic, committed, enthusiastic professional. 

I am very proficient in the use of profession-specific software, such as AutoCAD, Revit, Photoshop, and Sketch-Up.  Additionally, I speak a few languages, and am capable of learning new ones fairly quick.
