I have a Bachelors degree in Architecture since April 2011. At the Pontificia Unversidad Catolica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM) located in the Dominican Republic city of Santo Domingo, where I’ve been able to build more than 4 years of architectural experience.

In which I’ve worked in different roles, I first started as a CAD drafter (2D and 3D) thanks to my expertise in AutoCAD, SketchUp, Artlantis, Lumion, and other Design software, After that I got the opportunity to manage high end residential project, in terms of its schedule, budget and presentation, then I had to supervise this project in the construction phase.

I have also worked as an Architectural Freelancer, Designing Furniture, Kitchens, bathrooms and some houses and office layouts, as well 3D modeling of different residential and commercial buildings in different parts of the Dominican Republic.

I believe that there is always room for improvement that is why at the moment I am trying to obtain my Master’s Degree in Facilities Management from Pratt Institute of New York City. In the year I have studying this masters I’ve manage to increase my knowledge in Project Management, budget Management, Space Management, Schedules and more.

I like working as part of a team because I know I can learn of the experience of my coworkers and share my experience to them. With My knowledge of both English and Spanish languages I can communicate with different people.
