I am a graduate of the University of Washington Master's of Architecture program and am looking for work in architecture and building construction. I have a broad design background ranging from an undergraduate degree from Yale in art practice and history; to professional experience at Vogue magazine, the architecture firm HOK and the Seattle design studio Chadhaus; to starting my own design and fabrication business Ways and Means. I have a multifaceted skill set that includes architectural drafting and modeling; fluency in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop; as well as fabrication experience in wood and metal shops. I am excited to contribute to a firm and would look forward to discussing potential opportunities.

Thanks very much for your consideration,
