I am an architect and designer with more than seven years of experience in several architecture and interior design firms, coordinating and drafting Final Design and Construction Documents. I have collaborated on the design of different projects such as housing, hotels, museums, libraries, schools, restaurants, theaters and others.

My skills include designing and drawing projects, and the resolution of technical and constructive details. From schematic design through the construction document phase, producing floor plans, elevations, sections and details. I am also interested in the graphical presentation of architectural projects and in the graphic design field.

I work with AutoCAD 2D and 3D, ArchiCAD (BIM), InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, 3D Max, Revit and other basic computer applications (Office). I use and manage AutoCAD and InDesign advanced and automated features. I am also able to work with both metric and imperial systems. 

I am organized, responsible, efficient, hardworking and able to work in teams or individually. I would like to acquire practical experience and maximize my knowledge in areas such as construction, sustainability, urban planning, rehabilitation and all types of architectural projects in general.
