Architectural design is something that I love doing. I am one of the few that wake up and enjoy going to work to see what challenge lies ahead.

Currently I work for a commercial real estate company in the DC metro area, and have the opportunity to work for an array of tenants that include large industrial users, all the way to Class A high rise users.

In my spare time I have a passion for playing golf and enjoying the outdoors as much as posisble.
