As a graduate from Wentworth Institute of Technology with a Masters Degree in Architecture

Currently I am designing nuclear submarines for our nation's Navy. Though it is extremely technical work - it lacks my desire for aesthetics. I am looking to take my developed skills into more of a design environment where beauty is equally important as function.  

One of the strongest qualities I possess is my conceptual design skill; I am able to think outside the box in all facets of design from interpretations to form to site specifications. I am able to multitask and stay organized on more than one project at a time. In addition, I take pride in my communication and management skills, which are valuable assets when working with a team.

Throughout my education and my previous job experiences, I have been exposed to building codes, different phases of the design and construction process, and architectural practices. I have developed computer skills in programs such as Adobe and AutoCAD. Though a dying practice, I very much enjoy exploring design ideas through hand drafting. Whatever the media being used, I am proficient in pulling concepts together in a cohesive design layout and presentation.
