I am a recent architecture graduate from the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning and have previously completed an internship with ZGF, Los Angeles, in the summer of 2012. My academic background, coupled with my diverse work experience, has given me the tools and abilities necessary to add value to a position, and ultimately, to your company.
Throughout my education I have honed my abilities of displaying strong, creative, and quality work through digital and hand media. I have worked to achieve a level of refined, well-presented material that will show through in each specific project I take on. Along with these skills, the use of Autodesk Revit has now become integrated throughout my education, which I developed to a mastery level working with ZGF. From day one, I will be able to apply my knowledge and these skills to help contribute and meet the vision and values of your firm.

SAID, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, US, Materials Library Designer
Designer of the Materials Library for the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning.
Part of a four person team that included a registered architect, professional furniture designer, a graduate student, and myself designing a new spatial interface for the DAAP materials library. Through digital prototyping we sought a new way to develop an educational experience for selecting and learning about materials. We used the technical parameters of digital prototyping and parametric design to rethink the way we do basic programing, schematic design, design development, and basic construction documents with more complex abilities.
