 I have been immensely involved in all phases of design for multi-million dollar projects including government, residential, commercial, industrial, hospitality, and academic design projects; proven excellence in timely response in managing and drafting; demonstrated proficiency in generating quality schematics and construction documents with the latest versions of AutoCAD, Microstation, and Revit. I have worked independently with the responsibility of managing and producing quality work in addition to being a team player with engineers, clients, and other key components within a team environment. Ultimately I look forward to becoming an intricate member of a design firm that will allow me to contribute my talent and skill to make its mission a success.
