My academic and work experiences at Cornell University have exposed me to a variety of challenging situations that have prepared me for this field. I have developed strong organizational skills and good time management within a creative setting, in order to satisfy the constant demands of this highly competitive program at Cornell . Throughout my education, I have utilized both digital and physical media to represent effectively my architectural ideas to a public. To supplement two dimensional plans and three dimensional models, I have five years’ experience in communicating complex design proposals in oral presentations.  Native proficiency in English and Spanish allows me to communicate to a broad public. My studies also instilled in me the necessity of collaboration in every aspect of project development, from initial research and material gathering to collective drafting and presentation.
From my time at the Cornell University Libraries, I gained indispensable organizational and public service skills and experience in a professional work environment.
I believe that my academic and professional qualifications will benefit you firm.
