Fullerton, CA, US



With an education in architecture and with professional experience in both the architectural and construction industries, my objective is to work in a way that can help me utilizes my versatility and work ethic which encompasses both a design and building aspect.

Throughout my work experiences, I have been used in many different ways to help assist on a project. Whether it is helping in the early stages of design, drafting, running coordination meetings, or working in the field, I have been very versatile in using my skills to get the job done efficiently without compromising on quality.

My interests and skills primarily are in the area of BIM and parametric model drafting using software such as Revit and Navisworks. I am also quite versatile in the use of other types of computer software such as adobe suite and google sketch up.

I have always had a strong sense for designing buildings, but also love to see them get built so my objective would be to work for a company that is passionate about both. I am looking to work with a caring group of people that know how to have fun working together, but are serious about their work, the accuracy of their drawings, and are continuously striving to improve and raise the benchmark for future success in the design and construction industry.
