About 

I am a dynamic and ambitious young man looking to further my career in the field of Architecture. I have had some experience in the design and construction of various projects, while being exposed to the many design processes as well as first hand on-site experience. In June 2013, I completed my Master’s Degree in Architecture from Birmingham City University (BIAD) in Birmingham, U.K.  Prior to the completion of my education, I gained many years of experience as an intern at OBM International in Bermuda.


I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of AutoCAD, Sketchup, Photoshop, and Illustrator as well as other graphics communication programs. During my time at OBMI I had often been called upon to train other interns and employees in various computer software. Excellent time management skills and punctuality are also two of my strong points.


My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. With regards to working as part of a team I also have the ability to take an authoritative role when the situation arises. My strong social skills and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with all members in any team situation.
