About 

I am a graduate of the University of Houston - School of Architecture. I have 12 years of interdisciplinary work experience in high-end custom residential, multi-family, single family, light and heavy commercial (ground up & interiors), aviation, and industrial.  I am actively seeking an architectural position that encourages multiple roles (from client interaction through construction administration). I work well in team environments and can also thrive leading my own projects.

I pride myself in knowing as much as I can about about everything involved to produce great work. My relationships with contractors, consultants and especially clients is key to making the process as smooth as possible.

Education 

University of Houston, Houston, TX, US, BArch, Architecture

My professional bachelors degree encompassed theory, craft, history, physical & 3D model making, wood shop, welding, industrial design, structure, and much more. The final studio I took, had the most impact on who I am today. This was the study of "The Minimum". Pragmatic design utilizing minimal materials, iterative designs, and simple but impacting design elements.

The focus of my undergrad thesis/minor was in "People & Culture of Latin America". In my final year I was a finalist in a student competition. The project was the integration of sustainable, low-income, low-cost housing initiative for a poor suburb in Latin America.
