About 

I have an insatiable passion for life, ideas and everything highly technical and currently work with a forward-thinking information management and technology firm based in San Francisco where I head the services division for the company.

Previously, I worked for an architectural firm in Irvine performing magical work towards development of an asset repository and an integrated information platform for lifecycle building data collection, management and analytics for owners and streamlining the design and construction management process for consultants.

Previous to that, I worked for an institutional owner in Los Angeles developing a 3D information platform via experimental modeling for the purposes of data harvesting for construction management and capital assets management with a talented group of stakeholders in the computer programming underworld. I also built a whole bunch of poetry- standards, conceptual visualizations, data specifications, use cases and workflows, detailed implementation plans, design/construction/fm coordination workflows,QC plans, bench-marking indices, and training programs that will make your eyes bleed. 

I continue this work till today, in addition to organizational auditing of design processes/standards and corporate level goal-setting, planning, costs and ROI assessments for clients, developing proposals, participating in company business development initiatives, visualizing implementation strategies, developing road-maps and implementing projects in accordance to clients visions, and delivering conceptual, technical and implementation projects and presentations for clients. Lastly, I helped implement a geographic information systems platform for them which is quite cool in retrospect quelle horreur an undertaking otherwise.

My interests are varied, and generally involve exploration and discovery, deep poetry and insightful reads, music, film, art, and extreme sports.
