About 

In the process of editing...

 

 

I am currently looking for a position as an Architectural Intern with 3 years experience.   

I currently work for Lawrence Group Architects.  Lawrence Group is a St. Louis based firm with several remote offices.  I have been employed for the past three year with the New York location.  Our office works on a wide range of projects, including Hospitality, Higher-Ed, Broadcast & Media, Retail, Corporate, & Commercial.  I have had the fortunate opportunity in the three years that I have been with the company to have a role   

My previous experience , I have worked in three different Architecture offices in New Orleans during my time at Tulane.  They varied not only in size but also field of work.  I have worked on several areas of design - including commercial, residential, planning, development, and design-build.  With my education and previous internship experiences, I am prepared and excited to take my knowledge into my next opportunity.

My true passion for architecture was reinforced during a design-build program at Tulane, where a group of twenty architecture students designed and built buildings from seven shipping containers for a youth farm known as Grow Dat Youth Farm.  We developed space for offices, locker rooms, kitchen, bathroom, food storage, outdoor classroom, and tool storage.  During this program I developed skills and knowledge that have helped shape my thinking and helped me appreciate the importance and beauty of detailing.  The hands on work showed me the impact architecture has outside of the studio and how greatly it affects the client and the surrounding community.
