About 

My experience and Project Management acumen traverses several disciplines; however, my strongest skill sets are Architectural Design and Real Estate Development.

I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from the prestigious Southern California Institute of Architecture (Sci-Arc).As a student, I received several notable scholarships and awards: Sci-Arc Service Award, American Military Engineers Scholarship Award, and the Ebell Scholarship.  

Additionally, I received a Certificate of Completion from the Ross Real Estate Development Program offered by USC.

Moreover, I am a Veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces with an Honorable Discharge, so I am a strong supporter of Veteran Hiring initiatives.

I am interested in any company that conducts business in following industries: Architecture, Real Estate Development or Construction.

Kind regard,

Mr. Kenneth R. Hooper Jr.
