My skillset and expertise in design and project management has been molded from varied work experience in projects ranging from Hospitality (select to full-service and boutique hotels), upscale multi-family living and mixed-used developments, custom residential homes and corporate office and commercial planning and interiors. I am very well versed in (cad) production and documentation with 25 + years in Autocad, 6 yrs in Revit. Sketch-up and Bluebeam programs. I am open to opportunities to work with a dynamic organization where my talents can be utilized and be able to share my experience.
