A Brief history:
____________________

After acquiring my B. ARCH at the University of Oregon, I worked for four years at an architecture/engineering firm in Tampa, Florida. It was there that I began to develop my own design aesthetic, all while mastering several different software/BIM programs.  It was there that I also developed a very clear understanding of the critical importance of coordination with engineers and other consultants. It was in this time that I completed the LEED AP examination.

After living in Florida, I moved to Seattle for another four years, working at a a few different architecture offices in my time there.  In Washington I further developed my understanding of how to put together a high quality, well coordinated set of drawings.  I also completed my IDP and ARE's in this time and became a licensed architect in the state of Florida where I had begun the process (I also hold an NCARB certificate).  

In summer of 2012, I moved to New York City, and am currently seeking an opportunity to share my still-growing talents with an engaging collaborative team of architects that is in the business of pursuing design excellence and client service.

Employment 

Sierra Martin Architects, Bellevue, WA, US, Project Architect

I chose to work at this small firm to learn how a small firm is operated successfully. All of the responsibilities that had previously been handled by other people higher-up at previous firms were now squarely on my shoulders. In working with my employer/mentor directly on all aspects of running the firm, I learned a great deal about the practice of architecture, and also how to work independently in the most effective way possible. In addition to helping to land the biggest new-construction project in the firms history, I ran numerous quick-burn warehouse projects independently. In addition to performing my architectural work, I also further developed the already active Revit capabilities at the firm.

Aug 2011 - Jun 2012
 

McGranahan Architects, Tacoma, WA, US, Project Architect

I found that after helping two firms transition into the full context of Revit, I had developed quite a talent at sharing my expertise and setting up standards and documentation. I worked here as the revit specialist dedicating some 10-15% of my time towards developing, documenting, and implementing Revit standards to be used office-wide. The rest of my time was spent as a project architect involved in the design and documentation of two major school projects.

Oct 2009 - Jun 2011
 

Stock & Associates, Seattle, WA, US, Architect Intern

Along with my responsibilities in teaching and implementing Revit, I also worked on urban in-fill, renovation, and tenant improvement projects near downtown Seattle. I learned about many of the intricacies of bio-tech laboratory design in this time, although some projects were shelved due to the economic climate of the time (later completed after my time here). It was here that I began to work a bit more outside of the office environment. Along with working on the construction administration team of a remodel project in a university setting, I was also responsible for permitting a major urban tenant improvement project with the local building department.

Jul 2008 - Jul 2009
 

Long & Associates Architects and Engineers, Tampa, FL, US, Architect Intern

In my first professional position out of architecture school, I worked primarily in-house learning how to work most effectively in a team environment that is typical of medium to large scale projects including schools, universities, libraries, healthcare facilities, civic/public facilities, and industrial facilities. Working with in-house engineers directly from the beginning was automatic, and I learned much from them about what kind of considerations will be needed in future projects. I worked hard independently and gained the respect of my peers and mentors with my hard work, sharp design eye, and exceptional proficiencies with software/BIM and graphics.

AIA Tampa Bay Honor Award - Institutional Projects, 1st Place

Long & Associates Architects/Engineers received the AIA Tampa Bay Honor award for institutional projects in 2011 for Strawberry Crest High School. This high school represents the crowning achievement of my time in Florida.
