About 

I am a positive and veteran architect with thirty-five years experience in various project types and construction for Educational (K-16), Retail, Medical, Commercial, Industrial, Residential, and Various Renovations. Since beginning my career I have grown from an architectural intern working for respected architectural firms in both El Paso and Austin, Texas to a Project Manager in-charge of major projects ranging from $500,000 to $60 million.
During my career, I have always maintained a professional decorum with colleagues and clients. I consider teamwork as one of the most important factors for success and to ensure proper teamwork.
I am looking at an organization to bring not only my talent and experience, but my commitment and loyalty to a Firm that shares my principles. In a sense, what I offer is not over-promised, but professionally delivered. I do consider myself an individual capable of developing relationships based on the high level of ethics and quality of service.
