Miami, FL, US



From  a very young age I had always dreamed of building and designing structures, 
fantasylands and even silly gadgets. As an adult I still dream of such fantasies; just 
in a more mature way. I have experienced life  in an unconventional  way and have 
felt the many highs and lows of life’s obstacles. My goal in my career is to improve
the way of life for others in ways I wish someone had done for me. I have a strong
passion to improve upon ADA requirements  and architecture.  By  merging  design 
with  new accessibility  features I know I can improve our society in ways that ADA 
laws have not yet acknowledged.  My life  is  dedicated to leading by example  and 
helping others  with similar challenges realize that success is not unobtainable.  Life 
is what we choose to make  it. Every  individual  has obstacles to overcome. Some 
are  more  challenging  than others. If I can lead my team in an office I can lead a 
community  by  example  for the thousands of people struggling the same way I did 
but  with no hope. I am an  asset  to  any  company  and  a  charismatic  positive 
influence to my peers. I  can  offer  leadership,  teamwork, public verbal proficiency, 
and  a positive  attitude  on  top  of  conventional  architectural  skills. I  dream  of 
making a difference in the community.  I’m ready to work; I’m ready  to  lead;  and 
I’m ready to succeed.
