Thank you for taking the time to review my Archinect Profile. I'm looking to work in an architectural office that values strong technical skills in an open and collaborative environment.

I graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology with a Bachelors of Architecture in December of 2012.  Since graduating, I have been working as a landscape designer and project manager at Hulen Landscape Contractors.  The role has developed my knowledge of landscape architecture and ability to manage a project from the design process through construction phases and completion.  In this role, my technical skill set has been very important and has elevated the firm's design standards. My ability to multitask, prioritize work and focus on client needs has made me successful in the role.


I am looking to bring my skills to an architectural firm where I can expand my technical skills and design experience. I hope to hear from you.
