I am a recent graduate of the City College of New York seeking work in the New York City Metropolitan Area. I am a driven individual proficient in a range of softwares and means of visual representation, with prior experience working in a fast paced architectural environment, and sound knowledge of various design softwares such as AutoCad, Rhino 3D, Revit, V-Ray, Grasshopper, and the Adobe Suite.

During my college years I studied at the City College of New York, the Art Students League, and the Escola Técnica Superior d’Arquitectura in Barcelona. Studying architectural design hand in hand with the formal arts enabled me to approach each project from the perspective of a designer and artist. I attempt to tackle every task and design difficulty in the most creative of ways, and feel comfortable working on a wide array of project types and design styles. 

Thank you for your time toward my application!
