About 

Over the past eight years I have worked for Francisco Semsch Architect, Inc. (FSA, Inc.) initially as an administration, and drafting assistant and for the past five years as a Project coordinator. I have been exposed to all of the design phases from schematic to construction documents. I have also assisted project managers in coordinating information with consultants, conducting standard quality control procedures, and contacting clients for additional information. My position also involves coordinating and structuring any Request for Qualifications (RFQ) both in the private and federal sector.

In addition to my experience, I can provide any firm with the analytical, and research skills, I have developed while obtaining my bachelor in Arts and Masters of Architecture. In which I have explored different design solutions, as well as many different ways to translate ideas into 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional representations by using different mediums.
