I recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with my masters in architecture. All my life I have been driven and inspired by the way in which design influences everything in our everyday lives. Through my studies at school my eyes were opened to realize certain things that have become, "common" for lack of a better term, are really all the little details that bring an environment to life. Architecture is full of endless potential, to grow, change and influence the people and environment that we all live in today. I absolutely love that no project is ever the same and that no client has the same request, each new design is a journey not only to further investigate and resolve and aspect of a design but also and amazing way to connect with clients and their lifestyles in order to present the best cohesive design.
Great Beginning 1, Teacher
As an early childhood educator, I work on drawing up lesson plans that help to enhance the growth and development of children between the age of 1-5. Each day is centered around a curriculum that helps children to become aware of their surroundings and teaching them how to utilize their environment to further develop and their physical and cognitive skills.
Savannah College of Art and Design, Interior design team assistant
This was a temporary position that I worked while finishing up my masters in architecture, in order to broaden my education and take a peek at the interior design world. I worked with the professors at my school helping to organize and file documents and materials. I was also responsible for setting up appointments and meeting for faculty and students. The hands on experience and sitting in on critiques really opened my eyes to the world of interior design and has helped me to think about architecture in a whole new light.
Savannah College of Art and Design, MArch, Architecture
My education revolved around design studios that included projects that engaged in urban planning and development to smaller scale office buildings. At the Savannah College of Art and Design, they really encourage you to work with sustainability and to think about how design impacts the environment, not just the immediate but the long term influences it might have. For example, cities are all made up of pieces, zones, streets, building etc. they are all part of this "urban fabric" and when designing it is important to take into consideration the context of the city and the area of that city in which you are designing.
