I received a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Architecture and a minor in Marketing from Miami University, in Oxford, OH. I have ten months of experience designing private residences, as well as public and commercial buildings at Israelevitz Architects (www.israelevitz.com). I specialize in creating 3D computer models, simulations, and renderings. I work on all aspects of the project from working with clients and preparing presentations to design details and construction documents. I have an innate ability to work under pressure, meet deadlines and work independently. I have extensive knowledge of AutoCad, Sketchup, Atlantis 3d, V-Ray, Rhino 3D, 3ds Max, InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
