I am an architect and BIM coordinator with over 12 years of experience. I have worked in a variety of market sectors including Entertainment, Leisure, Justice, Civic, DOD, and Medical. I enjoy a challenge and thrive in solving difficult problems.
I received my Architectural Undergraduate degree from Cal Poly Pomona and Masters of Science in Emergent Technologies and Design from the Architectural Association in London.
Outside of work I have a strong passion for charitable work. I am the CEO of Building Humanity, a non profit that works with communities around the world to realize building projects through the help of volunteers and donors. I believe as professionals, it is our responsibility to provide our services to those who may not be able to afford them.
