Hi everyone, 

Here is a little background of who I am. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. Soon after graduating from high school I came to New York to find great opportunities. During my first year in New York I polished my English and later on I started going to New York City College of Technology (City Tech) to study architecture. During my time there I mainly focused on studying and giving my everything to architecture. One of my projects from a studio class made it to an exhibition hold at the Brooklyn Borough Hall, the fall of 2014. This exhibition was called Architectural Visions: Transforming Downtown Brooklyn—40 Innovative Design, a display of academic work, among other student’s projects. It offered a solution for the underdeveloped area in Downtown Brooklyn that has a full potential for being taken to another level. 

I am a fast learner, eager to learn and work, motivated and passionate at what I do. I am also well organized, responsible, can work independently, as well as, in team. Moreover, I believe I can make a significant contribution to what Architecture is today and will be in the future

My hobbies are reading, drawing, painting, and recently fell in love with photography.
