About 

I am an extremely talented designer. I will go on to explain a a brief background about myself, as well as what I have to offer.

I have a Bachelors of Science in Architectural Studies, and have had experience in my  field. I worked at the award winning firm Noero Wolff architects after the owner of the company and my lecturer offered me a job at his practice.  It was a smaller firm which means that I over saw entire residential small scale projects. From concept development, to drafting to contacting contractors, to furniture design final renders and construction.Here my responsibilities also included (full Microsoft Suite), fielding calls, outlook, excel, word and all the daily tools that keep an office running smoothly in addition to the actual architectural design work. The following are the programmes that I know to an advanced level. I have an aesthetic inclination that leans towards modern, but in practice like to find a language that correlates with the project/building at hand.

AutoCad 2009 - 2012

Photoshop CS2, CS3 and CS5

Sketchup Including Rendering plugins

Revit 2009 - 2012

ArchiCad
3ds Max - intermediate, in the process of learning
Very high standard of hand drawing, ink and water color painting, physical model making

Employment 

Heinrich Wolf, Draftsman/Intern

In this, my internship period, I engaged in various physical model making tasks and reported directly to the Managing Director of the company. Working in AutoCad and Revit to produce 2D and 3D images and details of both building and furniture. The main project I was involved in was the restoration and addition to an existing dilapidated yet historically poignant building. This project demanded design sensitivity and my role was hands on design, sight visits comparing construction to drawings, detailing and recording construction.

Awards 

Best Project entailing the innovative use of clay brick, 1st Place

This was a project about re-invigorating a small community of houses that had been poorly maintained. The issues here were sustainable development, both economic and environmental. In this project my focus was on creating a simple yet effective language of construction that could be duplicated by the users of the buildings; which included small dwellings and amenities.
