About 

I am recently graduated from Drexel University's 2 + 4 Architecture Program.

I am seeking to secure an internship with an architecture and design firm that will allow me to supplement and foster my classroom knowledge and skill accrued over the past several years at Drexel’s Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. And also to gain learning that will aid in the accumulation of IDP credits toward my eventual licensure.

The curriculum covered all relevant coursework pertaining to the field, ranging from Studio design classes, to structural engineering, exercises in sustainability, building enclosure design, etc.

Everything culminated in our Thesis project, a full year-long conception and demonstration of an architectural idea.

Awards 

Drexel University 2012 Michael Pearson Thesis Prize, Nomination

This prize honors Michael Pearson, a 1988 architecture graduate, whose life was tragically cut short in
1989. The Pearson Prize is presented annually to the architecture student "who produces the best thesis project, and who, in the course of the thesis year, shows exceptional spirit in pursuing the work." The winner, chosen by faculty vote, receives a gold medal and a stipend for extended travel for the study of architecture. Second and third place awardees receive silver and bronze medals respectively.

I was one of three other students nominated as finalists for the prize.
