I am a recent graduate from the Architecture program at The Illinois Institute of Technology, College of Architecture. I am excited to continue my professional experience and energized began to explore the richness of architecture profession in the real world dealing with other professions that will help building me to become a better architect in the future.

During my studies I have become increasingly fascinated with incorporating digital methods into my design proposals. I began to explore with digital tools such as: Rhino, Maya, Revit and very well excel with some other programs such as SketchUp, 3DMax, CAdd and 3D Cadd. I utilize these technologies as well as the use of handcrafted drawings to develop a unique representation that allows me to explain my projects in a concise, legible, and evocative way.
I have experienced the characteristic of different architecture design through variety projects, from a smaller project such as single housing to a bigger scale projects such as a community building and the renovation of a 20 storey living units in Berlin; to a much more complicate building such as a FAT building with an extremely complex programs that operated 24/7, to a smart wall system that integrated with sustainability technology that applied on a 4 storey building across from Crown Hall. The school education had layout a basic solid foundation for my career. And now I must step another step forward into a much more exciting and challenging phase of this unique profession. I know that working with others Professional architects that had great experiences and knowledge in all fields will be the most valuable experience and honor of my career.  It will help me to gain a strong knowledge of the team relationship and more to understand other Professional that I may work with in the future.
During my education I have worked and knowledgeable some aspect of architecture that allowed me to understand more about the client, the designer, and other prospective as well as myself.  I believed that I would become useful asses to your team because of my work ethic, my design ability, discipline and my overall skill that I process.
