About me

I am a very hard working, reliable and passionate individual that works well with others. Throughout my studies in Architectural Technology, I have obtained knowledge in many areas such as AutoCAD, Revit, Sketchup, Lumion, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Building Physical Models, and much more.

I feel that my passion for Architecture originates from both sides of the family. My maternal grandfather used to design and build things on his own such as a greenhouse in his backyard, and much more. My paternal uncle likes to design and create things using his imagination, and has now completed his Architecture Degree. Although a sense of design and overall knowledge about construction seems to run in the family, I feel that my interest in Architecture and Design really kicked off in high school. During my time in high school, I built some furniture, a model of a home, and much more in my construction / woodshop classes. This seemed to really spark my interest in Architecture and Design, so that’s what I pursued.

My whole life I have played high levels of sports so I'm very competitive and work well with others.
