“My name is Alexis García Elsevyf, architect, obtained from the Dominican Republic. I finished my architecture studies in the year of 2007 with outstanding grades. I been practicing in the area of architecture and construction since 2005 in various architectural and urban planning studios. I worked in several positions since my beginnings, as an intern to work as project manager of an architecture firm with international recognition in the area of tourism architecture, the project from its conceptualization stages to its supervision and completion. Among my responsibilities in the area of architecture is to have been in a load of several unique projects in which they have been modified by their avant-garde design and their interaction with respect to their enclave. Through the years, i became aware of the need in the knowledge of programs related to design that are complementary, when presenting a project, both in its conceptualization stage and in the visualization in its completed stage . So among my skills is the management of image creation, editing and manipulation programs, as well as modeling and rendering programs. As far as my skills and my knowledge acquired during my professional stage of more than 15 years, I can carry out a project from its initial stage until its completion. In addition, I know how to take advantage of my creative skills, to be able to experiment and get into other problems related to creativity. Involving me in the realization of scripts for short films and in the design of illustrations, advertising posters, as well as the brand design of private companies. So my ratio range of my creativity has encompass many ranges.”
