I'm a young professional currently seeking a position as a Junior Architect/Draftsperson. I went to Catholic Univeristy of America in Washington D.C., where I graduated from the Architecture program with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture. After graduating in 2008, I worked full time at a small firm on Long Island, specializing in high-end residential architecture. I stayed with Matthew Korn Architecture for a little over a year, where I participated directly with the head architect on multiple projects ranging from additions on existing residences to new constructions. I am looking to further my career in architecture and more then willing to expand my knowledge or architecture to other areas other then just residential.
