About 

To whom it may concern,


I am very passionate about all aspects of the design and documentation of architectural projects and
bring a detail-oriented eye to every task. I enjoy working as part of a team and am eager to contribute to
the production of both group and individual projects. Through my education and prior experience, I have
found that my strengths lie in communication (visual and interpersonal), and I am confident that I am a
strong candidate for the position.


Over the past several years, I have been involved in a diverse set of projects at different stages ranging
from initial design to active construction. I recently held sole responsibility for the production of a digital
model and planning board presentation for a detailed custom residence, while balancing several other
projects. I have also had the benefit of frequent exposure to client and contractor relations, which has
cultivated my ability to communicate as a design professional. Currently, I am enrolled in the Intern
Development Program, and have logged approximately half of the training hours required for exam
eligibility.


Thank you for your time and consideration, I look forward to the opportunity of a personal interview.


Sincerely,
Christopher Morella
