About 

Having recently relocated to New York from Dublin, Ireland I am a young part 2 graduate architect whom is looking to broaden his work scope and scale up into a larger work environment. I am Currently in possession of a J1-IWT visa which entitles me to work and travel within the United States. 

In my previous position at Dogpatch Labs, I was responsible for the interior architectural management of a rapidly expanding technology co-working space. Over the course of two phases of construction an additional floor area of 24,000 square feet was added to the office space. My roles here consisted of not only the design and management of an ever changing workspace but also the project management of an active site while also liaising with international tenants.

This unique position I feel allowed me to build my skills of design, understanding of an industry and assertiveness as a person in a role of responsibility. It was a position in which I scaled my own talents to meet the pace and tempo of a fast growing and exciting company.

The resulting projects were published in Architecture Ireland (issue 286) and a publication titled The Creative Workplace (Dublin Roads Publishing 2016) and at present has been submitted for an RIAI award for conservation.

My education, both in Ireland and at the Bauhaus in Germany along with my previous experience gives me a strong background upon which I can build further skills while at the same time contributing in a substantive way to your company.

Employment 

Dogpatch Labs, Dublin, IE, Inhouse Designer, Design Consultant

Undertaken as a collaboration between myself and two university associates over a space of two years our contracted roles with this exciting and fast paced company involved acting as in-house designers and design consultant over various rapid phases of construction.

Due to the fast paced nature of each phase the swift and clear dissemination of information across a broad design team was imperative to the success of the projects.

Responsibilities included the design, arrangement of construction drawings and management of various large scale furniture pieces, the spatial management of an ever changing workspace, the project management of two very fast paced construction periods and the masterplanning and enactment of various fit-out contracts.

ModelWorks Media, Dublin, IE, Senior Modelmaker

Modelworks specialised in the design, assembly and distribution of high grade architectural models for both market and planning stages. A large base of international clients meant models were made for export to not only Dublin but London, Dubai, and Malaysia.

As a modelmaker my responsibilities included not only the the physical act of assembling models but also the planning and design which would go in to each. Each piece would require the coordination of a large team of 5 to 20 people to carry the project from inception and design to execution, and responsibilities were expanded to the heading up of my own project.

Tools employed ranged from not only traditional carpentry, and cabinetmaking tools (tablesaws, drills, chiselwork, spraybooths etc) to newer techniques (lasercutting, 3d printing, c&c machines).

This time with modelworks allowed me to develop planning and management skills while allowing me pursue a passion and interest in building in a physical and tactile mode. It exposed me to a world of high pressure timescales with real world consequences which I found a sense of energy and urgency from.
