New York- NY, US



I am a registered Costa Rican Architect with over 7 years of professional design and management experience. I have worked on a range of projects. My experience includes working on residential, commercial, landscaping, governmental & institutional projects.

Through the years I have focused on the details, and specifically I have improved my problem-solving skills to ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and with the highest possible standards. Overall, I feel comfortable working in teams, but also have the ability and experience to take an authoritative role when the situation arises. Furthermore, my communication skills, and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with clients I deal with, and coworkers alike.

As an individual, I am passionate on the work I do, which in the long run helps me to achieve ideas with others, enhancing a desire to be a part of a collaborative team that cares about great design making use of individuals' strengths. I bring strong qualities of leadership, integrity and management of each project, and would be willing to take on responsibility when necessary. 

About my skills and objectives, I'm a young professional, sociable and dynamic person with a proven ability to work in teams. I seek to continue my professional development by contributing to Architecture in any aspect, and I am prepared to carry out endeavors worldwide.

My point of view or my approach allows the exquisite use of the space and balance using natural resources such as light, air flow and water. This represents an important reason to be responsible and integrate architecture with the natural environment and its inhabitants.
