Having graduated a Master of Architecture from Roger Williams University in May 2013, I have put in more than my share of all-nighters in the design studio for six years. In addition to an architectural degree I also have a dual minor in Construction Management, and Art & Architecture History.
I have had many experiences at RWU that I am eager to build upon. A semester abroad in Florence at the Palazzo Rucellai and other locales throughout Italy, together with a comprehensive design project at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain have enabled me to experience the architecture of many different cultures. I have developed a level of awareness that goes beyond the classroom, and a goal of being able to travel for my profession in the future.
While a 4th year undergraduate student, I participated in a professional design competition hosted by Suckerpunch Studios where I placed in the top 20 of over 200 entrants. This experience inspired me to make my work stand out from the crowd by thinking outside the box in terms of design, board layout, and creative methods of representation. It forced me to produce work at a much higher level and at a much quicker pace.
A specific strength of mine that both my professors and guest architect critics have noted is my ability to resolve design problems through active sketching. I have always loved to draw and have become able to think out loud with a pencil. This is a skill that I am eager to further develop as I move into the professional world.
WILSON & ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS, INC., New York, NY, US, Designer
During my time at Wilson Associates I’ve done a great deal of designing, rendering of plans and elevations, as well as drafting and composing final drawing sets for the clients review - throughout all phases of the design process. I have also worked on several large scale mixed-use Schematic Design proposals located over seas.
AMArchitectural Designs, Patchogue, NY, US, Draftsman
My duties as main draftsman included drafting projects in autoCAD based on field notes, site visits, and photos. I also had to compile many CD sets for necessary approvals and permits. I would work on drawings to be approved by the town board. I would often have to go to the site, measure, and compile a set of drawings of the existing conditions.
My supervisor provided annotations and codes for me. My task was to select and arrange them accordingly within a CD set. I also built quick 3D models using autodesk Revit for the clients review and in order to get the Town Board’s approval on the proposed changes.
