I am a recent graduate from California College of the Arts in San Francisco. I have about seven years of experience working in architectural offices. I was born in and around Southern California but moved to the bay area in 2007 for architecture school. I am currently enrolled in the Intern Development Program looking to become a licensed architect in the near future. I have much interest in large scale commercial projects including hotels, hospitals, museums, airports and office/industrial buildings. I have had the opportunity to travel to Europe for two different study abroad programs and hope to return; Italy is next on my list.
Interactive Design Corp, Palm Springs, CA, US, Associate
I currently manage multiple projects from public facilities to non-profit organizations and multi-family housing. I work on all phases of the projects from RFP to construction administration and closeout. Many of our projects are funded with Federal Grants which requires much paperwork and organization. I work daily on construction documents, reviewing submittals, visit construction sites, manage projects, coordinate with consultants and communicate with Clients. I work a lot with photoshop and indesign for presentation drawings throughout the phases of design. I also have experience with City Agencies to obtain Planning Approval and Building Permit.
