About 

With design, architecture, and project management experience in Type V, Type II, and Type I construction in both traditional and contemporary design, I am seeking to join a company that will allow me to combine my ability to develop construction documents, with my abilities to manage and construct projects.

I would like to provide you with a brief outline of my skill set to help you determine whether my experience is appropriate for a position:

• Programmatic and Technical Experience
The range of projects I have experience completing include (but not limited to):
1.Single Family Residential
2.Multi-Family Residential
3.Hospitality
4.Mixed Use
5.Urban Design
6.Land Use Planning

• Material and Stylistic Aptitude
Broad range-traditional to contemporary:
1.Use of Traditional Materials and Methods-
Addition to Cakebread Winery, Adaptive Reuse of Guasti Winery to a Food Hall,  and Historic Renovation/Restoration of a private residence designed and Julia Morgan.
2.Use of Alternative Materials and Construction Methods-
Slow Food Nation Green Kitchen installation design and The San Francisco Civic Center Victory Garden and Meal at The table event coordination.

• Production Skills
Broad range:
1.Free hand sketching and drawing.
2.Computer drafting and drawing.
3.Graphic Design
Streamlined marketing approach-
Coordination of production drawings with marketing requirements to streamline the conversion of production drawings into marketing material.
4.Increased productivity-
Developed methods of increasing productivity of junior staff members through the development of a residential construction document task checklist. The checklist allows senior staff members to focus more energy on design and construction administration rather than on monitoring CD production.

• Experience with Regulator Agencies:
Familiarity with both code and design policy and approval processes.
1.Experience as a member of a design team seeking design approval and code compliance while working for a design/architecture firm.
