D evoted to detail, enamored with history and believe in combining traditional values learned as a free-hand artist with those of design, I love order and the unknown. I find myself sketching all the time, since I was a kid, and I really enjoy drawing. Later on, I was interested in the digital world and studied Computer Programming. But in order to combine the two subjects I liked most I became a Graphic Designer, graduated with a bachelor in Fine Arts in 2002 from Florida Atlantic University. Then I had the wonderful idea of going back to school, start all over but this time to fulfill my perennial dream to become an architect. I graduated with a bachelor in Architecture in 2014. I have 4 years experience and it feels good. As we all know, at the beginning school does not resemble the professional practice, so much. I became a drafter more than a designer to catch up with the real world. But it has been very useful in understanding the ‘how things work’ and making sense of the building code. Of course, this is not the Code of Hammurabi, lex talionis, but makes the architect aware of his obligations toward life and safety. It makes us better.
I see myself soon working for a firm with great design orientation, now that I have acquired the needed skills with the profession and IBC, so I can create besides producing. My goal for 2019 is taking the six ARE 5.0 exams and get my license. I think I can do it!
