About 

I have a Masters in Architecture from Florida International University and a B.S. from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale.  In the past I've worked for small firms in the Miami area.  I started working for Rafael Aragones Group located in the Brickell area.  I had the chance to use my skills as a 3D modeler and render artist for their "The Edge on Brickell" project. Although the job temporary it was an excellent working experience that opened other doors for me. 

   Later, I started working for GMB Architecture and Consulting based in N. Miami Beach.  Although I did not design much here, I did learn a little bit of interior architecture.  My duties were to revise floor plans and sections and create 3D renders. After, I worked for Italkraft, where I design kitchen space layouts.  This job is a bit more challenging because I have to deal with multiple projects simultaneously.  Aside from designing, I also have to provide installation quotes to clients and still find a way to create 3D models and renders.

I then worked for Visual House Miami, unfortunately, they closed their office here in Miami. I now work at PDT International where I'm a 3D specialist.  Most of the projects there are based in Mexico.  We deal with commercial and retail projects.
