About 

Thank you for taking the time to view this posting.

I hope that you will find, represented herewith, that my experience as a professional and as a student have sharpened my skills of organization, coordination, and architectural representation sufficiently to make a positive contribution to your team.

Having served in the capacity of a draftsperson, a contract writer, a junior designer, and a small project team leader, I’ve developed an appreciation for the importance of effectively organizing such information as project goals, physical context, timing, and economy to contribute value to the project team.

Whether operating at the level of the intricate detail or the gestural sketch, I seek to understand, implement, and properly communicate goals and objectives appropriately for the project at hand.

Royal Rangers Gold Medal of Achievement, Award

The Gold Medal of Achievement (GMA) is the highest honor a boy can earn in the Royal Ranger program. Some believe it is equivalent to the Eagle Scout award in the Scouting program, and many recipiants receive recognition from senators and the President of the United States. In its 47-year history the GMA has been earned by over 6000 boys. At this time, slightly less than 1% of the boys involved in Royal Rangers each year earn the GMA. As a result of its challenging merit trail, it is a coveted award for any Royal Ranger boy.
