About 

Currently a Junior Architect, I have worked for 6 years on retail designs, facade restoration, new construction and design developments. Projects that I have been associated with range from small office spaces to large commercial retail renovations,  and new canopy construction. I also have created renderings that better assist clients to visually understand the designs. 

My interests range from photography, graphic designs to marathon runner and triathlete.
