My previous experience allowed me to work on institutional, commercial, hospitality, residential, healthcare, transportation and most recently retail projects. With their diverse requirements and different locations; these projects helped me maintain an open mind allowing me to successfully evaluate unique problems (design related or project administration), and develop effective solutions in a short period. This also strengthened my creativity and improved my research skills.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering -with a concentration in Public Buildings- which is accredited according to NAAB-EESA. I recently completed my Masters in Architecture from the Boston Architectural College. My thesis -Built to Adapt: Form & Function follows Demand- was designing a framework that is susceptive to various functions and forms to satisfy the client’s flux demand as it occurs. There are many benefits for this type of building mainly to reduce demolition debris, and to minimize initial investment risks. My GPA is 3.46 with a High Pass on my thesis.

Currently, I am working toward licensure. I satisfied my Intern Development Program (IDP) requirements and preparing for the Architectural Record Examination (ARE).

I am searching to join an innovative team that is not afraid to rethink the standard methods and challenge traditions. Furthermore, a firm that considers professional development part of its mission.
