I am fascinated by the ability to tell a story or define an idea through candor expressions of architecture. With this in mind, I strive to design architecture that is beautiful, but functional; conceptual but unique, precedential but innovative.
I am a passionate and articulate developing designer seeking to join a team of enthusiastic design professionals dedicated to thoughtful, elegant, and sustainable design. As a very self-motivated worker, I can operate unaided, but I thrive in a collaborative environment that promotes the sharing of ideas, knowledge, and experience. I enjoy tackling new challenges and working with people whom I respect and admire.
Over time I have developed a strong background in digital modeling, rendering, and graphic representation. While my work demonstrates my strong aptitude for visual presentation, I believe my strengths lie in my ability to prioritize goals and communicate ideas, complimented by my desire to continue to grow and learn.
It is my goal to use my interpersonal communication skills and administrative experience to further my leadership abilities, as well as to grow both personally and professionally. I am committed to a mutually beneficial work partnership and as a dedicated designer, I will continue to seek out knowledge that compliments my education.
