Louisville, KY, US



As an Architecture Intern, I look forward to practicing the knowledge I have attained throughout my years in the profession, graduate student and undergraduate experiences. In all of my projects throughout the A/E workforce and urban design, I strongly value identity, individualism, excellence and quality to the profession. I have had the opportunity to apply these guiding principles in a wide range of projects through my different levels of participation in various disciplines of the A/E industry. 

Prior to working at an architecture firm in Kentucky, I attended SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) and graduated with a Masters of Urban Design (M.U.D.) in the summer of 2013. Previously, I obtained a professional five year Bachelors of Architecture (B. Arch) from Centro de Diseño,  Arquitectura y Construccion (CEDAC) in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Upon my architecture graduation in July of 2011, I got my degree certified by the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH) which enabled me to gain registration as a Honduran Architect with the Honduran Board of Architects (Colegio de Arquitectos de Honduras - CAH).
