I am a currently employed junior designer and former architecture student from the University of Virginia excited to work in the fields of architecture and industrial design.
My skills in various areas include:
Architecture: Working at small firms has given me the opportunity to gain valuable experience in multiple phases of the architecture profession. I have been able to work on projects from schematic design through construction administration. During the process I worked directly with clients, consultants, and contractors.
Product Design: I have created and built designs on a smaller scale for both professional and personal projects.
Marketing: I have worked to help promote the work of firms I’ve been with by creating award submissions for various AIA awards, magazine award submissions, and various print and online materials for general promotion.
