I have between four and five years of experience working in architecture firms and one interior design firm. My most recent position was as a Project Manager at James Wagman Architect, where I oversaw a residential gut renovation from concept design through CA, a preschool from DD through CA, and portions of many other projects as well. I have managed CA for four projects, all local to New York, so I visited the sites weekly and developed good working relationships with the contractors. I enjoy both conceptual design and the reality of getting a design built.
I am a recent M.Arch. graduate from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Design, and I have excellent graphic skills and familiarity with a lot of design software. I am currently freelancing on a graphic design project for the Dean's Office and Computing at PennDesign.
I am available for full-time architecture, urban design, and graphic design positions, as well as part-time and freelance work. I am open to moving anywhere for a good job, and I am prepared to move quickly. While help with relocation is appreciated if available, it is not required for me to accept a position.
