I am a recent graduate of Washington State University's undergrad architecture program. Currently, I am looking for work as an intern architect in order to break into the profession. Aside from my education, my background is in furniture design and construction, drafting and general clerical work.
Camp Spalding, Videographer
My primary duty was to produce one 15 minute 'week-in-review' film for each group that used the camp. This involved filming various activities and editing the footage using Apple's FinalCut software. With the camp program (theme) team, I also co-wrote, filmed and edited program videos used to introduce the annual theme to each group. Finally, I assisted camp counsellors in their duties by participating in cabin activities, providing supplies and other similar tasks.
Washington State University, Resident Advisor
I was responsible for the well-being of approximately 25 students, usually freshmen. In order to fulfil that responsibility, I provided social, academic and cultural activities, mediated roommate conflicts, and enforced the university conduct policy. I also worked at the hall front desk, where I performed customer service, sorted mail and did other general office tasks. Finally, I served on the professional staff hiring committee, which selects new hall directors each spring.
Lyon's Construction, Drafter
I converted hand-drawn sketches and written descriptions into presentation and construction documents using AutoCAD. I also produced as-built drawings of a single-family residence using the same software.
Capernwray Hall, Theology
Capernwray Hall is a short-term Bible school. The overarching purpose of study there is to acquire a more solid grounding in the Christian faith: it is a school for personal growth and development rather than for professional qualification.
Washington State University, Bachelors, Architecture
Washington State University's undergraduate architecture program is intended to prepare the student for either continued pursuit of a Master of Architecture degree or for entry into the profession as an intern. The program is composed of eight studio semesters which focus on various aspects of design such as materiality, cultural considerations and program, a two and one-half year history/theory program, and other courses including structures, basic materials science, codes, acoustics and the like. Essentially, the program is designed to provide an understanding of all the aspects of architectural practice.
