About 

Project Manager/Senior Architect/Senior Designer /Detailer/Construction Manager, who successfully designed and executed multiple projects totaling over $900 Million in construction costs.
I am used to "wearing different hats", providing a full spectrum of architectural services.
Needless to state: "devil is in details", therefore my complete focus is: DETAILS!
I think 3D...model, detail...process 3D

Specialties: My middle name is "Complexity"...so bring them on...be my guest!
I know projects by heart, respect religiously all design sensitivities and when I do the project “I become the project”.
Also, I can sell any idea...to the clients that is.
