An architectural professional with a background in working drawings and construction, my  diverse experience will be a valuable asset to your firm.

A few highlights from my career:


  • Worked as a framer for residential construction and manufactured housing companies.
  • Project Lead in charge of structural layout and design of shop-built wall framing and floor/roof truss components for a prefabricated housing company.
  • Produced working drawings for all types of projects and all types of construction, including single family homes, apartments, grocery stores, banks, and timeshare resorts as a Draftsman, a Job Captain and a Project Manger.
  • Construction Administrator for multi-family housing projects. This experience includes drafting and tracking document changes, responding to requests for information, review of submittals, and working through drawing conflicts with the general contractor during the entire construction process.
  • Obtained Planning Department, Building Department and field inspection approvals for single family, multi-family, senior housing, retail and commercial projects.

The principal in an office where I worked labeled me a “nuts and bolts guy”. My strength is using a familiarity with construction process to take projects from design documents through construction documents and implementing those plans in the field. I believe this strength can be of benefit to your firm.

Please review the brief portfolio of several projects I've worked on. I also have working drawing samples available upon request. If you have any questions or comments please email me at

Thank you for taking time to review my profile. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
