As a recent SCI-Arc graduate (B.Arch '11), I appreciate and thrive working in a team environment, especially with smart, competent people who love what they do and who are eager to push themselves further. I have a variety of internship and work experience, ranging in various design fields from architecture to interiors to film, and am now looking to build upon those experiences in a firm as a full-time designer.
Not only am I excellent with all the latest CAD software and rendering programs, but I am also comfortable dealing with clients and am extremely well organized in terms of office management. In addition, I work hard and learn fast and would welcome the opportunity to be working directly with an experienced senior architect.
