As a recent graduate with a BFA Interior Architecture degree from Columbia College Chicago, I am currently looking for an entry level postion in the interior design/architecture field.
I have had a great deal of design experience in various courses that include design theory, four studio courses, rendering and presentation, and fundamentals of lighting. I have used 3ds Max, Revit, and AutoCAD to complete my interior architectural designs. In my interior architectural studies, I have assessed various design elements such as code compliance, adaptive reuse, and global issues.
In addition to my academic experiences, I have gained some valuable work experience and learned about the many areas of the design process through an internship with a hospitality design firm. I assisted the designers with various tasks, managed reception duties, and maintained their resource library.
