I was born in Honduras and arrived to the United States when I was 9 years old. My immigrant family dedicated themselves to various works in constructions. I grew up having a deep understanding of materials and structures. My desire to become an architecture is deeply blended between my passion for buildings and the desire to expand upon my family’s legacy in the United States and all over the world.

One of the leading influences in my life is my faith in Jesus Christ.
