Chicago, IL, US



I am an architectural professional with five years experience in both architectural management and construction administration in various sectors of design. As an architecture consultant at various firms in the US and Peru, I have gained a great deal of knowledge from a diverse team of professionals. These past five years have been both enriching and progressive as they have allowed me the opportunity to work on higher education, corporate, transportation, residential, retail, and restaurant design projects, increasing my knowledge of a wide range of market sectors.

My professional experience also includes managing several design projects through completion, introducing new marketing strategies, and implementing BIM standards for various architectural and design firms. By constantly expanding my experiences to incorporate all of the components of the architectural profession, I continue to develop my design and practical knowledge within the fields of architecture and construction.
