I am a New York City resident, but I was born in Ecuador. My family and I moved when I was 10 years old. Since then New York has been my home. I am now enrolled as an architecture student at the New York City College of Technology pursuing my degree in architecture technology.

I am a highly motivated and determined honor student, whose approach in design 
projects has led to excellent results. I am currently seeking a position in the architecture/design field to expand my knowledge and potentially advance professionally.
