Since graduating WIT in 2010 with an MArch degree, I have been assisting in the development of residential and commercial project through concept, schematic drawings and CD sets. I have been responsible for overseeing and coordinating the design of 3-Dimensional models and renderings for presentation purposes. Coming out of college into the field, I have introduced my artistic expertise and technical skills through freehand sketches, and rendered site plans. In the 2+ years since graduating, I have expanded my responsibilities that include Code Research, Office Management, Project Management and maintaining office standards.
