Portfolio

Throughout my career; I have had the pleasure of collaborating with some amazing people who have inspired and support me. Here is a very brief sampling of my capabilities. For a more indepth supply of work; feel free to message me.

Qualities

Architecture

Since the age of 12; I have loved everything about Architecture. Most people get excited about seeing a new car or other beautiful object. I get ecstatic about seeing a great building or new building detail. It's who I am.

Construction

Being the son of a plumber, I came to an early realization that dreams will remain dreams if you can't build them. My father's instinctual upbringing gave me a deep appreciation for all building crafts. For without them; architecture is merely a nice drawing.

Real Estate

From an early childhood I have fond memories of working in real estate. From sitting next to my father during a closing to dealing with tenants on a regular basis. Everything about real estate intrigues me. From the analytics behind every deal to the physical property attributes, real estate is an integral part of my soul.

Family

Without my family I would be nothing. I cherish our time together for our memories created this beautiful quilt we call life.

Tech Lover

Since my first (Tandy) computer; I have always appreciated how technology enhances our lives. Its lighting speed transformation over the past decades has left an awe inspiring impression on me, causing me to salvate with every tech article I come across

World Traveler

My parents have blessed me with a love of travel since an early age; most likely due to our family frequently visiting my parent's home country of Poland. The power of instilling a love of travel on a child has a profound impact on their worldly view as they appreciate the world's vast amount of cultures. On my bucket list of continents to visit; I still have Australia, Africa, and Antartica. It will happen one day; I promise.

Design

Being an architect; has given me a fundamental appreciation for all design disciplines. From graphic to furniture, every design element deserves recognition and respect. Without design; life would simply be filled with gray boxes and unhappy people.
