About 

I am looking for a position as an Architectural Intern with 3 years experience.   I'm looking to learn daily in a challenging and engaging environment while developing into a respectful architect. 

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, Healthcare & Commercial.  With the expected fast pace of design and construction in New York, I have had the fortunate opportunity to have worked on a project in each of these fields.  The knowledge and experience I have gained from working with clients such as MLB.com, Christie's, Northeastern University, & Equinox has been exponentially more educational than I could have ever expected.  

In my previous experience , I worked for three different Architecture offices in New Orleans as a summer intern.  Each firm varied not only in size but also field of work including Commercial, Residential, Planning, Development, and Design-Build.
