List any professional goals, accomplishments, favorite projects you contributed to & why, etc.
From humble beginnings I am proud to have started as a laborer and over 20 years have worked up to an executive level. I have been a loyal employee having worked for only a few companies during that span. I appreciate the importance of every role in the company and every process of a project. My favorite projects are the ones I’ve learned the most from.
DMV Granada Hills. I partnered with the property owner of strip mall to design and develop a submittal package to the Department of Motor Vehicles to consider as a potential site. To which was accepted as one of five locations being added in the state of California to support new ID legislation and the expected traffic demand. The location was the largest of it’s kind at 35,000sf and was completed first despite others starting earlier. The project included the renovation of the building and SMEP systems and buildout of space that employed 150 employees and served thousands of Southern Californians.
