About 

With only six (6) years of contract management experience in the United States Air Force, I have managed a very diverse and complex portfolio of requirements.

I have managed, in total, over $10.5M in construction projects, $11.2M in commodity and service contracts, and $104M in base support and private security contracts.

I recently completed an Associate of Arts in Real Estates Studies, and am working toward completing my Bachelor of Arts in Program Acquisition and Contracting from the American Military University.

Upon completion of my undergrad, I plan to enroll in either the Academy of Art University's Master of Architecture (M.Arch) program or the University of Denver's Master of Science in Real Estate and Construction Management (MSRECM) program.

I am striving to work in sustainable architecture & real estate development and hope to one day also provide support to nonprofit organizations such as Architecture for Humanity and Habitat for Humanity, who provide innovative designs and affordable homes, respectively, to local communities around the world.
