About 

I am a recent graduate from the Master of Architecture I (3-years) at the Spitzer School of Architecture (CCNY), with professional experience in residential architecture and interior design, skilled in AutoCAD, Rhino, InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, V-Ray,  SketchUp Pro, and Revit. I also had the honor to graduate Summa Cum Laude from a Bachelor of Architecture (5-years) at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM), Santiago, Dominican Republic.  I have had the opportunity to be in charge of the design of a few residential projects in my native country, where I explored architectural solutions from the very conceptual process until the final documentation.
