About me

 

I was born and raised in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1988 and moved to Vancouver in 2012. Was about 10 when my passion for design began, and it continues until date. Reinforcing my dream, 5 years of architecture education has not only boosted my energy and enthusiasm to achieve my aim but has also helped me learn to translate a line on a drawing board into practical solutions as bricks for real time challenges.

 

Today I am currently an Intern Architect in the process of getting my license as a Registered Architect of British Columbia. Have finalized all my experience hours, courses, reports, and just waiting for my final examination.
