About 

I am always seeking to expand my skill set and creativity.  Currently I am working part time as a Fabrication Assistant working primarily with small scale custom concrete castings for products at INSEK Design.  I would like to focus on gaining more office oriented experience within a group dynamic to achieve design and build experience with larger scale projects and offices.
