About 

I am a recent Bachelor of Architecture graduate looking to create value through design. I am a level headed, outspoken and self-motivated individual. I'm versatile in architecture software including AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino and Sketchup. I am also very comfortable with adobe software including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator among others.  I am an active volunteer, currently working with NOMA (the National Organization for Minority Architects) as an architecture camp mentor and HSF (the Hispanic Scholarship Foundation) as a marketing caller. I am currently studying for my licensure exams and would appreciate the opportunity for in-field experience.
