Atlanta, GA, US



My range of experience has come from working for a small residential and commercial architecture firm in the south loop of Chicago for the better part of six years, as well as two high-end residential firms in Atlanta for the past five years, where I absorbed a classical background.  I am currently consulting with a firm specializing in hospitality work. Having seen the quality of the work that your office has produced, I would look forward to furthering my career and education as an architect in such an environment.
Much of my work thus far has included, but has not limited itself to, the surveying and as-built and design studies of project sites; zoning and building code research and assessments; correspondence with city building departments; client, contractor, and vendor relations; design-work and detail on several commercial, civil, and high-end residential constructions; the production of construction documentation and marketing materials; and all other tasks associated with project management, client management, and construction administration.  I also have experience in religious and educational architecture working on two churches and a school during my time in Chicago.  I am extremely proficient in AutoCAD, Revit, Microstation, and MS Office, and have held computer technical support duties in two past offices.  I have also completed courses with Porter Novelli’s Career 2.0 program in marketing and public relations.

As my ultimate goal is to become a licensed, competent architect, the education I have attained in the profession thus far is one I hope to build on with each new opportunity and I will soon be commencing with my architectural licensing exams, as well as LEED registration.  I am a hard-working and dedicated individual motivated by the new experiences and rewards that may be achieved each day in the professional environment.  I pledge to bring a fresh perspective, a selfless determination, organization, and a quality product to your work staff.
