about me

I am a 21 year old Construction Engineering student studying at a 4 year university here in San Diego, and I have always been interested in Architecture, Landscaping, and Construction since I was a little kid. Ever since I can remember I would watch my Grandpa working on the yard, and working on masonry projects. I always found it fascinating, and as a result, I have worked my way up throughout the years. Started with landscaping for friends and neighbors when I was in Middle school, then painting in High school, and in recent years gained an interest for a multitude of other crafts such as Masonry (concrete, overlays); Minor carpentry repairs (fascia board and trim replacements); Tile work (Granite Tile, Porcelain Floor tile); Drywall and texture, Spray painting, Window installation, and Stucco. I learned a lot throughout the past 3 years, as I was an intern for a major General Contractor in my summer breaks from school, and worked part-time with them for about 1/2 a year.
