      As a Grad. from Woodbury University with a major in Architecture. I have learned to work in group environments and welcome all types of collaborative opportunities. It is at Woodbury where I learned how to use both design techniques and theoretical concepts to produce novel and flexible architectural solutions.

       Most of my work experience is in the construction fields however a lot of architecture design and permitting are always involved.  For the last 8 years I have Worked in my own construction business and now feel competent in the Construction field. I Began as a construction worker trenching, setting up for gas lines, water lines, and foundations all according to city codes. With time I worked my way up to Foreman, Project Manager/Designer/Drafter and now I am the President of JBC Design & Build co.   

As a College Grad and Business Owner, I strongly believe that I have the motivation and the talent to help any Architecture firm with current and future aspirations.

Woodbury University, BArch, Architecture

At this University I learned to master five areas of study pertinent to all architecture:
critical thinking - the ability to build abstract relationships and understand the impact of ideas based on research and analysis of multiple cultural and theoretical contexts;
design - the inventive and reflective conception, development, and production of architecture;
building - the technical aspects, systems, and materials and their role in the implementation of design;
representation - the wide range of media used to communicate design ideas including writing, speaking, drawing, and model making;
professionalism - the ability to manage, argue, and act legally, ethically, and critically in society and the environment.
