Work Experience


Sr Architectural Designer | Creative Director

I am a Sr Architectural Designer with extensive design & planning experience of Hospitality, Retail Centers & Entertainment projects. My focus is concept development & visualization to promote excellence in client engagement, impactful & memorable guest experiences & profitable operations. I believe many of the problems we encounter in the built environment have a common origin that may be traced back to conceptual deficiencies, forced implementation of poorly preconceived ideas, and just plain misinformation and misunderstanding of fundamental requirements.

I endeavor to overcome such difficulties by keeping an open mind, an inclination to listen and learn, and a rigorous work ethic.

I have lived and studied in Spain (Madrid), The Caribbean (Cuba and Dominican Republic) & Florida (Miami and Orlando). For the past 8 years, I have lived in Las Vegas, NV, and worked both in Las Vegas as well as Los Angeles, CA. I travel frequently and I have a KTN / Tsa-Pre Checked.
