About 

My name is Edgardo Rivera-Ortiz, architect in training #20445 and a graduate of Master Degree in Architecture at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).  I am a hard working, fast learner with the experience and competence to contribute positively in anything I put my mind into.  I am fluent in both Spanish and English language, and have proficiency and knowledge in numerous software programs. 

As you may seen in my resume, I have over eight years of experience as an architect (preparing construction and presentation documents, 3d renderings, meetings with clients, etc.) and over three years of experience estimating and preparing construction proposals for numerous bids, and managing various construction projects.  These experiences had helped me in my development as a person and as a professional.
