About 

Recent Columbia University graduate at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation with a Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Design, in addition to a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Design degrees from Arizona State University.  I am resourceful, hard working, disciplined, and enthusiastic about design and architecture,with excellent communication skills, and a desire, hunger, and determination to learn and expand my personal knowledge.  My academic background and past work experience in both architecture and urban design express my  interest in synergistic client / designer collaborations, and in creating complex and unique design interventions. Furthermore, my high software aptitude and proficiency in a number of 3-D modeling and rendering platforms, recent practice at the Columbia University Output Shop, and diverse background as a New Yorker who lived in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Arizona, are skills and insights that I believe can add a unique viewpoint and be an asset to any practice. All that, plus, I am an avid animal lover.
