About

I am an Architectural Designer, Revit and AutoCAD Specialist with a strong background in Building Information Modeling,
MEP Design and Modeling, Structural Design and Modeling and Architectural Design. Throughout my career I have been highly successful at managing projects on schedule and within budget. I have over 6 years of professional experience designing using Revit and AutoCAD for Architectural, Structural, and MEP. During my professional career I have had the opportunity to lead a group of Designers and Engineers as a BIM Manager and have been project lead on several BIM projects ranging from Residential, Commerical, Healthcare, Universities, and K-12. From there I moved on to opening my own business running a CAD and BIM services firm. I enjoy every aspect of design as I get to use my creativity and intellectual ability to showcase my skill set on a vast majority of projects.
