I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Architecture, and a Masters of Architecture degree from Florida International University (FIU). Prior to my enrollment at FIU, I was employed to an architectural and planning firm called, cornerstone.desgin, located in Kingston, Jamaica, for two years. During my time at FIU, I interned at SEED (Simply Evolving Endless Design), an interior and exterior design studio and furniture design company in Miami, Florida and also worked in the capacity of a Graduate Assistant, where I taught Architectural History III at FIU.
The practical and theoretical knowledge that I have gained over the years have adequately prepared me with very strong design skills for mixed use projects, small scale and large scale residential and commercial projects, as well as, urban planning, graphic design and computer rendering. I am a firm believer in delivering quality customer service, offering effective communication, and teamwork, which are skills I have developed and refined through working in an architectural office and being a member and president of several clubs.
