I graduated from sCi_aRc in 2010 and have been working in the field since 2005. I began with a simple interest for the Computer Aided Software back in 1998 and quickly was introduced to a whole world of design and experiment. I have developed an interest in experimental design and prototyping, but always find an interest in space organizing and making buildings correspond to the environment at hand. In my designs I always try to conceptualize an idea by capturing the clients desire and use it as a driving force to develop the architectural language. I have had the opportunity to work in several types of projects from small residential remodels to new residential projects and a slight focus in designing sanctuaries ( churches and places of massive gathering)
