About

I have been practicing civil engineering for the past 12 years throughout the United States. I am proficient in using AutoCAD and Microstation platforms. I can perform feasibility studies, environmental studies, and generate plans that are ready to be reviewed by City officials. I am extremely detail-oriented and can comfortably work with a multi-disciplinary team. I can prepare your plans on AutoCAD or Microstation as well as issue exhibits and reports.
