    When I think of Architecture, I can't help but think about the aesthetics of living. Not Martha Stewart Living, per se' real life situations. There are things in life that simply give us joy, and don't need to be justified or explained. There is no reason to live in a house or work in a building that makes us feel "good" if we have the opportunity to do the same in a space that make us feel “giddy”.

    My portfolio includes work across a spectrum of industries and uses. Taking pride in developing a diversity of projects rather than “specializing” I have completed projects that allow me to offer a broad range of design ideas, implementations, and experience that would not be available with specialization.

    Professional Profile

    "Get the job done right the first time, every time"

    • Accomplished architectural specialist with diverse experience and notable success in all phases of architectural practice from schematic design to final construction documents
    • Joined several projects in crisis
    • Perceptive listener capturing and transforming an architect's intent into a set of drawings and specifications
    • Thrives in a deadline-oriented atmosphere
    • Able to resolve issues alone or in cross-functional team environments
    • Analytical and results based crew leader with the ability to lead a team towards the project goals
    • Exceptional Architectural and Structural detailing skills
    • Knowledgeable of engineering disciplines to coordinate work related to building design; acutely aware of coordination issues on complex projects
    • "Highly Motivated Person", who knows success comes from hard work

    You may ask: "Why Should We Hire You?..."

    You can have my answer now:

    Because with my track record for producing quality design work both in budget and within schedule, I believe that my skill set has much to offer a firm with high design standards and dynamic workflow requirements.Service oriented, very strong creativity problem solving skills, adept at prioritizing critical tasks and juggling multiple projects simultaneously are just a few of the assets I have to offer. My goal during the architectural process is always to take steps toward the goal line (project construction) with minimal wasted time and effort.

    In addition to the above I am well-organized, fast, and efficient. I am very easy to work with, and know how to handle difficult situations and personalities with finesse. I employ humor in the mix, and if you check with my references, you will find that not only I have a thorough design skills, I’m just plain fun to work with. I am one who seeks out new challenges and knowledge while striving for project and firm success.
