About 

As an Architectural Designer my purpose is to always create a functional and esthetically pleasing solution for my clients. I'm a multicultural individual who believe that an Architectural creation holds within an immense responsibility and impact on the users of the spaces we envision and build for society.

I've had the opportunity to collaborate in projects of different scales and types from conceptual phases through construction documents. Different project types include Commercial, Residential, Civil, & Mixed-Use. My 3D modeling experience and training allows me to consistently collaborate with diverse features of projects including manufacturing & fabrication methods.

I thrive to achieve excellence in design, while enhancing the artistic process as an important part of workflow.
