A little about me:

I like to think that I am a well-rounded structural engineer with great knowledge background, education record and successful experience in buildings design.

I believe our structural engineering profession imposes a never-ending learning journey to anyone trying to master its craft, as such I have a growth mindset, wanting to learn from every project. I also have an "unapologetic ask mindset', as there are always things to learn from every colleague around you; I thrive in environment encouraging such behaviors.

When it comes to large projects involving many engineers, I'd rather over communicate any potential issues or comments than ignoring them. I am a natural learner, for instance, I self-taught myself the English language. Moreover, where uncommon and/or new design is encountered, I was relied upon by senior engineers to research topics, code requirements and design recommendations.


Proficient in the following structural engineering software:

  • AutoDesk Revit and AutoCAD
  • Risa 3D
  • Ram Suite (Ram Structural, Ram Elements, Ram Connection, Ram SBeam).
  • CSI (ETABS, SAP2000, SAFE)
  • Tekla Tedds
  • Microsoft Excel
  • BlueBeam

- Masonry design, including masonry lintel beams, jambs and masonry walls. Performed an extensive study for masonry partition walls to develop design tables showing required reinforcement for masonry partition walls with varying thicknesses, spans (heights), seismic design category and importance factor.

- Structural analysis and design using RISA 3D, RAM suite (RAM Structural System, RAM Element, RAM Connection, RAM SBeam), Tekla Tedds, CSI (SAP2000, ETABS, SAFE), Hilti Profis and Microsoft Excel).

- Preparing and drafting complete construction documents (Structural Sheets set) using Revit, including all necessary framing plans, elevations, typical details, sections, loading maps, notes and schedules.

- Developing 3D structural BIM models in Revit for projects requiring coordination between the different design disciplines.

- Developing structural design criteria for projects, including dead, live, snow, wind and seismic demands per ASCE 7. Preparing structural general notes and inspection notes.

- Reviewing submittals during construction administration phase, including foundation steel rebars, structural steel framing, steel bracing, base plates, anchor rods, steel trusses, embedded steel, roof decks, composite slabs, miscellaneous steel, cold formed metal framing, concrete mixes, reinforced masonry walls.

- Extracting design information from existing buildings drawings for retrofitting projects. Assessing existing steel joist systems capacity for new loads and occupation category.

- Performed material takeoff study for steel tonnages of different proposed structural systems during the projects preliminary design phases.

- Performed concrete foundation design package for pre-engineered metal building.
