I have worked in Argentina and Dubai as an architect, learning every element of the profession, from design work to technical work, to project managing.  I took a three year hiatus to pursue a new venture in developing and running a start up event company, where I was able to learn new skills such as budgeting, contractual obligations, team management, brand development and marketing.  Now, I want to bring all newly acquired skills and administer them to architecture and get back into following my true passion.  With my experience in architecture and being a COO of a company, I know that my skills will be a positive gain for any firm, along with my determination to get the tasks done and meet deadlines, I'm sure that I can help any organization I join.   I truly would like to get back into architecture and start focusing on becoming registered back in the U.S. so that I can become a bigger asset to the organization.
