My name is Mark Mulhair, and I'm a veteran in my 5th year of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's Architecture Program. This June I will be wrapping up my BArch at Cal Poly, and am looking to reestablish myself professionally in Southern California at a design firm that will challenge me as an emerging designer.
