About 

Working in Manhattan for 3 years in the architecture field and looking forward to future business ventures.

I have over 5 years experience in the construction and architecture field, and over 4 years experience as an architecture and landscape architecture student.

My experience with construction documents and project management allows me to understand the building process from the schematic to the constructed.  Clear communication and organization skills allow me to be a team player while at the same time work independently on tasks.  In my previous office I performed site visits, drew construction documents, wrote specifications, and conducted contract administration on various projects throughout the United States.  I have worked on a mix of projects ranging from remodels of existing buildings to the construction of new structures.
