I have worked in the field for over two years and I am looking to start the next chapter of my career in the city that inspired me to become an architect in the first place, after spending my life up until this point in Texas. I am actively pursuing licensure, and with the right mentorship, I am hoping to be licensed within a year.
I have spent the first two years of my professional career at Perkins+Will in Dallas, where I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of small to medium scale projects, primarily in the Healthcare, Hospitality and Higher Education market sectors. Working in the Design Studio, most of my efforts have been poured into conceptual and schematic phases of design, while also playing a large role in the pursuit of new work for the firm. This work has been reinforced by additional experience in detailing and consultant correspondence in later phases of projects. Working in a large firm like Perkins+Will has allowed me to gain exposure to projects of varying scales, scopes, and clientele. My experience at Perkins+Will has allowed me plenty of opportunities to adjust to the fast-paced world of architecture and learn what it takes to excel in the field.
My work experience would not have been possible without the solid foundation laid by my education at the University of Texas at Austin. UT provided me with the tools necessary to express my thoughts and designs clearly and concisely. Throughout my studies I made it a goal to take advantage of the many opportunities the school presented to expand my learning to architecture’s related fields, such as landscape architecture and urban design.
