About 

Since I was a teenager I've been involved in construction - therefore the technical and craft components of architecture have alway come naturally to me. But my true passion comes from the summers spent with my family in Mexico City. For them living in such a cultural city was nature, but for me, the arts, the architecture, and the people of Mexico City prepared me for the creative and cultural components the architecture.

I've recently received my Masters from a great program at the Pratt Institue in Brooklyn, NY, and I am looking for a job that will fulfill the same passion that has brought me to where I am today.
