I am a dynamic and ambitious architect with over four years of experience in various projects and constructions on luxury houses, home units, industrial and commercial buildings and schools. Since graduating from the University of Southern California with a 5 years Professional degree in Architecture and minor in Construction Management, I have worked in two well-known architecture and construction management companies such as DSH and USC Facility management.

I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of Auto CAD, SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, Adobe suite, Microsoft Office and other BIM and graphics communication programs. In previous jobs, I have often been called upon to train juniors and other employees in different computer software. I have experience in technical detailing and shop drawings. An excellent working knowledge of contracts administration is also one of my strong points.

My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensures that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. I am comfortable working as part of a team besides of having the ability to take an authoritative role when the situation arises. My verbal communication skills and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with all clients I work with.
