Pasadena, CA, US



I am a self-motivated person with optimism, energy, and excellent communication skills. I have had many opportunities to work alone and with teams, where I have strived to be a leader to accomplish projects effectively and efficiently to a high level.


Having worked at a boutique firm, I have been able to gain a plethora of knowledge that has been a great benefit to my skill set. It has given me the great advantage of taking on a lot of responsibility early that has helped realize my strengths very quickly in my career. One of the strongest characteristics I employ is my ability to multi-task. This allowed me to meet with clients, negotiate with city officials, and coordinate with engineers and team members. I have now reached a point where I’m ready to take the next step and apply these skills towards larger projects at a larger firm.
