About 

I am a recent architecture graduate from Florida Atlantic University. I have been a resident in Florida for 18 years. I have logged in over 10 years of experience as a manager in the retail Visual Merchandising field. I'm eager to pursue a career in the design field. I have acquired my architecture degree while working part-time as a residential project manager. This position has given me about 2 years of experience in the construction management business. I believe I'm prepared to tackle any position within the design/construction business.
