About 

I am an enthusiastic go-getter trying to gain more experience in other construction types.  The majority of my experience is in military design and construction as well as commercial TI experience.  Military design projects have all kinds of programming with many requirements overlapping those found in typical commercial and private construction but can vary greatly in their end intent.  I have in depth experience in Revit both as an operator but also as a teacher, having implemented teaching sessions at my previous architecture employment to train co-workers to be efficient while in a working environment.
