I studied and earned my Bachelor of Architecture degree from an accredited University - Woodbury University in Burbank CA 1998. Since then I was able to Intern as a Junior Office Engineer on a new High School for 2 1/2 years, worked directly with the Project Manager of the job, 2 In house Architects and other professionals.
I also studied Art for ten years on a part time basis prior to going and completing my Architecture degree. I do have a love for art and would love to incorporate it into design. Currently I work part time as Management Support, handling marketing, and other office duties like invoicing, billing, and collections. I am looking for something more in my field. I have been known to be organized and to work well in a team environment. I have input hours into completing IDP for perhaps gaining my Architecture license sometime in the future.
