About 

https://eyo.cargocollective.co...

As a designer and job captain with over five years of experience, I have a well-rounded technical and design expertise working on various high-end residential, commercial, and institutional projects throughout Southern California and overseas. I started to develop Revit models for various types of projects to streamline coordination with Structural and MEP consultants and to generate construction drawings efficiently since 2008. Being LEED Certified in 2009, I have incorporated sustainability techniques into projects. Between 2011 and 2013, I pursued a Master’s of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. I explored design in methodological, programmatic and tectonic ways. After graduation, I took a five year break from my professional career. It was used for personal reasons to reconnect and support my family. I needed to rebuild a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Additionally, I was inspired through international travel.  

The gap enabled me to solidify my foundation. I am refreshed and reinvigorated to return to the workforce, if opportunities permit. New practices facilitated by new technology are profoundly altering the ways we measure, create, and ultimately inhabit space. As a practitioner, my goal is to conceptualize innovative intersections between art, science, technology, architecture, and cities. My efforts intend to exemplify emerging developments within each of these fields to reach the widest possible audiences.
