My name is Alfred Romero, I’m a Navajo Indian born in Springer, New Mexico, currently living in Escondido, Calif. I have been married to my wonderful wife Christine for 23
years. I also have 2 amazing stepchildren and 2 grandchildren. My young grandson has taken an interest in what I am doing and now he goes with me to job sites to measure and take pictures. He is also in the process of learning AutoCad.
In my spare time I enjoy fishing and drawing/painting.
I also enjoy traveling with my wife. We recently completed a 7 week road trip by car ( not RV) of the United States. It was amazing experience, even if I did take my drafting projects with me to work on in the evenings.
I have an Associate Degree in Architecture from Southwestern College in Chula Vista, Calif.
I have worked for several companies learning my trade.
About 1980, I opened my own part time business, known as R & A Drafting Agency, which I ran until I closed it in 2009 due to my inability to provide my clients with my full time attention as I was working a full time job in addition to the part time drafting. I recently retired after 17 years with a local government agency, doing civil engineering drafting. So that I don't drive my wife crazy with extra time on my hands ( also to avoid the "Honey-do List" ), I have decided to reopen the business on a full time basis under the name of Dream Catcher Drafting, a nod to my Native American Heritage.
I am experienced in both AutoCad and free hand drafting.
I also have extensive experience doing contract drafting for architectural and engineering firms.
In addition to my architectural drafting experience, I have over 27 years of experience in civil engineering drafting.
We have several upcoming projects including custom homes, room additions, retaining wall and ADUs
( Accessory Dwelling Units).
I just finished expansion plans for Mediterraneo Bistro in Alpine, Calif. In fact if you are in the area, stop in and try their authentic Italian food and of course finish your meal off with the best cheesecake you will ever eat. Their new addition of a Sports Bar and Game Room should be opening soon.
Also I recently finished plans for a room addition in Santee, Calif, as well room addition in Escondido, Calif.
Additionally, I am in process in finishing up an ADU (granny flat) in Escondido and a garage conversion in Paradise Hills (San Diego),Calif.
I am a member of the Home Advisor.
I was also the proud sponsor of the Escondido Youth Baseball Shetland Braves, of which my granddaughter was a part of the team in the Spring of 2019. I will continue my sponsorship in Spring of 2020 .
Also a proud member of the Better Business Bureau.
I currently only accept Cash or Checks. I will accept Paypal but there will be a 3% service fee for it.
I don't accept Credit Cards.
