About 

I am a graduate of NJIT's 5-year Bachelors of Architecture program and an associate member of the American Institute of Architects. I have completed roughly half of my NCARB AXP hours and have passed 3 of the 6 AREs towards my licensure. I am currently seeking a architect position, to complete my AXP hours and expand my knowledge base to become a registered architect. I have worked in many disciplines of architecture, interior design and general contracting within small, medium and large firms. I have acquired a unique skill set I feel would help benefit any team.

I have had first-hand experience working on projects in AutoCAD and Revit; 3D modeling in Rhino and 3DStudio Max using V-Ray; and editing/compilation in Photoshop, InDesign, & Illustrator. In addition, I have worked on projects using Maxscript and have delved into Maya, Grasshopper and particle systems. I am a strong believer in green technology and the worldwide benefits that LEED has to offer, and plan on becoming certified in the near future. I am a quick and enthusiastic learner who enjoys new challenges to broaden his horizons.
