Livingston, CA, US



        I am a hard working energetic designer, with a vast amount of technical knowledge and artistic skills.  I believe in the visualization of a design, going beyond the set parameters of a project and making it into something truly special.  I strive to balance the logic and pragmatism of reality with the ephemeral visions and qualities beloved art.  I am both a skilled drafter and illustrator with a vast imagination and natural artistic ability. I'm versatile in several computer design programs and love working both in analog and digital format
          In addition to architecture I am also an accomplished artist and sculptor.  These imagination and creative skills manifests in my work and allows me to delve deeper into the design of a project. Yet above all, my greatest trait is my work ethic and commitment to finishing a project with the utmost quality I can achieve.  I continually strive to improve myself and my design pushing myself and what I can do.  Design is a living organism the more you learn and know, the further it allows your projects to grow.  Although perfection may be impossible, I believe its pursuit can lead to great and wonderful things.
