Resume :  
I was born in Cuba in 1962, and educated there and in the Ukraine, where I was awarded a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1986. (My original diploma was verified by Education Evaluators International, Incorporated, of Los Alamitos, California, and deemed equivalent in level and purpose to a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering awarded by accredited colleges and universities in the United States.) I immigrated to the United States in 2001 and became a naturalized citizen in 2008.
I have extensive experience in all types of construction projects, from residential remodeling through the building of large resorts. I am skilled in contract negotiations, financial management, construction materials management, and personnel management of small and large construction projects including direct interface with architects and designers. I can read and understand all documents associated with the design and construction phases. My strengths include bringing projects to completion on time and within budget.
Through living, studying, and working in different countries I have become fluent in Spanish, Italian, Russian, and English. My computer skills include Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point, and Project, as well as AutoCAD and QuickBooks.
