I hold a BS degree in Architecture from City College of CUNY and I am currently in the process of obtaining my architect's license from the State of New York. I have worked with autocad for so many years that I consider myself at a semi-expert level. For many years not only have I provided CAD support to my peers but I have also spent time (as needs arose) teaching and sharing with them some of the knowledge and skills that I have acquired throughout my career.
I pride myself in everything I do and I do everything to the best of my ability. I work very well independently or as a member of a team, I do however expect my teammates to be just as responsible when working together on any projects.
