About 

I enjoy working in the studio environment for a design oriented firm. I want to make a difference with my passion for architecture and self-motivated work ethics. I aspire to use my wide range of software proficiency and hands-on technical expertise to be a part of a great team. I think I can be a good asset for a fervent firm with my ability to adapt and learn new skill sets. I seek an opportunity that pushes the limits of my ability and helps me grow.
