Bronx, NY, US



I have a great interest in working with an inspiring team on unique projects to which I can contribute my extensive skills and creative capabilities. My last position was as staff architect at an architectural firm that specialized in health care and educational projects. I have worked on all phases of architecture from schematic design through construction administration. My work ethic is extremely efficient and detail oriented. I enjoy working in team environments, am always willing to do extra work when needed, and insist on preparing quality work. I am looking for work experience that offers a challenge. Although much of my experience has been in health care and schools, I have also worked on public architecture, and residential and tenant improvement projects. I am working towards gaining my architectural license and learning more about the profession with a particular interest in sustainability. I plan to pursue an advanced degree in the future with an emphasis on green design. I passed the Materials and Methods section of the A.R.E. Creativity is inherent in my persona and art is quite an enjoyable pastime, and each of these qualities are great contributors to my architectural capabilities.
