I am a graduate of UCLA's Masters of Architecture program, working in a variety of fields where I use my skills in AutoCAD, Rhino3D, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

I currently work for a custom theater room design firm, creating great theater rooms for both individual and corporate clients.

Previously, I worked for Merlin Studios Carlsbad, owned by Merlin Entertainment's Property and Development Group, managing the California model shop and helping produce & deliver LEGO models for LEGOLAND resorts worldwide. After that, I worked for an architectural software company, delivering VR capabilities. Then I worked for a theming & fabrication company that created props, retail displays, and trade show booths for conventions around the country.
