About 

I am a graduate of Texas A&M's Bachelors of Environmental Design, and am in the process of trying to pursue my Masters in order to attain my license. I have always seen that you never stop learning, no matter how old or how much you think you know. I try to take each day as an opportunity to find new things I can learn. If you stay still, you can't find out if you like something new or not. You have to be willing to try something, otherwise, you might miss out on something you might enjoy. I put 100% of my being into my work, and I try to be as well-rounded as possible by learning different arts, such as graphic design, photography, IT, Revit, AutoCAD, as well as traditional arts.

Education 

Texas A&M University, Bachelors, Environmental Design

I began in the summer of 2007, I had already taken my core basics at a local community college, so I was able to work almost completely on just my architectural classes. I did my first year studios in one summer. In fall 2007, I signed up for the Minor in Architectural History, because it was the castles and cathedrals that always caught my fancy. I also took up a part-time job while I took 15 hours each semester. In the fall of 2008, I was assigned to do an internship as part of the semester away program at Texas A&M, where I worked at Rees Associates for four months. At the time, I was hopeful that I would be able to return to Rees once I graduated. However, the market had a better idea, because it decided to tank as I returned to school. I completed my degree in May of 2010, and have been searching for an architectural position since.
