About 

I am an architecture graduate from the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech.  My media is AutoCAD, Sketchup, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Revit, Rhino 3D, Vray, Cinema 4D, drafting, watercolor, sketching, photography, and physical models. 

I am interested in free form through modular systems and repurposed architecture. 

I work for W. Lerman Architecture as Client Development & Project Manager.  I work on architectural and interior design projects assembling construction documents and interacting with potential and current clients. I am in charge of marketing the firm by going to networking events, conventions, keeping up with the Linked-In page, and creating booklets and brochures to ultimately introduce W. Lerman Architecture to potential clients. Administrative assistant and accounts receivable are also part of my responsibilities where I answer the phone and keep up with the monthly invoicing and files.
