I am a 5th year Architecture Student studying at Philadelphia University, currently working on my own thesis project. Looking into the current Mexican-American border condition my thesis developed into the blurring of political barriers into softer divides, allowing interaction to better the conditions for each party.
I gained knowledge through two summer internships working with design teams. In a small firm, I worked on all stages of the design process, from meeting with clients to schematic design. Starting with the drafting of construction documents, I facilitated projects through the construction phase.
Creating innovative designs and displaying enthusiasm for learning provided acceptance into thesis at Philadelphia University. Executing a digital fabrication project from conceptual design to construction utilized my extensive knowledge of software. I have displayed my ability to work in a collaborative environment by completing a team-based comprehensive project. In addition, I have demonstrated my independence by being selected as one of eight individuals to participate in the John Stewardson Memorial Competition.
I currently seeking full time employment in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and DC.
