About 

I’m a graduate of the USC School of Architecture with a minor in Real Estate Development and am currently employed at a firm specializing in multi-family housing. I work with BIM management and setting Revit standards for our projects consisting of market rate multi-family projects and affordable housing. I've coordinated with engineers, developers, and other consultants as needed throughout milestones of our projects. I hope to work toward being a BIM manger and being at the forefront of technology in architecture.

I graduated in December 2016 and during my last year at USC I worked at Sargenti Architects, a retail architecture firm located in Downtown LA, as a BIM Specialist. I was their sole Revit employee in the Los Angeles office and I was responsible for all their projects in Revit as well interfacing with retail clients that required deliverables in different formats. The bulk of my work was several clothing retailers and coffee chains spread throughout California.  I've been able to take care of any tasks thrown at me with no difficulty and have cleaned up a fair share of sloppily designed  Revit projects from previous employees. From working here I learned a lot about how retail architecture differs from the office and hotel projects I was more familiar with at the time. 

In New York I worked with VOA Architecture and KGM Architectural Lighting on several high rise projects throughout the city. The projects were mostly office and hotel with a few residential and mixed use projects scattered throughout. I learned about how different the building process is in New York compared to Los Angeles and how the two cities approach construction and design very differently.

I’m a team player with a good sense of humor and am willing to put in as many hours as necessary to get a project done and up to my standards. I’m capable of prioritizing work by importance and keep a consistent level of quality in my work. I am also an avid cook and love learning about new recipes. I’ve found that food is a good way to bring people together and helps friendships grow stronger. I believe that relaxing helps bring teams together as well and helps people grow more productive and in sync when working for long periods of time. I’m a self-starter with a strong work ethic and I want to explore the limits of my abilities.
