I’m an intermediate-level architect with 5 years of professional experience in both design and construction. I received a five-year bachelor of architecture from the University of Tennessee in 2006.
After completing a five-year bachelor of architecture at the University of Tennessee in 2006, I joined Gensler in New York, working in their retail and branding design studio. Over three years there, I gained valuable knowledge of the industry and profession, contributing to a wide range of project types and scales while interacting directly with clients, consultants, contractors and fellow designers through each stage of the design and construction process. I'm proficient in AutoCAD and Adobe Creative Suite, and have significant experience with various modeling/rendering softwares. Currently, I am working for an international construction firm, expanding my understanding of building processes and strategies.
Feel free to contact me for more information, my resume, portfolio samples, etc.
