As an Architectural Designer, I can conceptualize, design and detail high-end residential and commercial projects including offices, retail and restaurants using CAD, Revit, hand sketching and 3D visualization. With concept-driven design skills and extensive experience in residential, entertainment, or office developments, I bring a comprehensive vision to the design process, from concept to construction documentation.
I have extensive experience in the preparation and layout of architectural contract documents and specifications. This usually involves coordination with a multi-disciplined team, participation in client and internal meetings, the review of documents for areas of conflict, and the adjustment of the workload to complete documents on schedule. I have also provided, on an as needed basis, the preparation of specifications, reviews with governing agencies for code compliance, and construction administration.
