I graduated in 2011 from Southern Illinois University with a Masters degree in Architecture and have about five years of experience working in the field. I am on the path to licensure with all of my IDP hours complete and in preparation for the ARE.
After working at a firm that specializes in Institutional, Educational, and Government projects, I have had a hand in all aspects of the design process from Schematic Design to the production of Construction Documents and some Construction Administration in both AutoCad and Revit. I also worked at a firm in St. Louis, Missouri that specializes in high-end residential architecture. Because both of these firms were very small, I have been exposed to much of the office administration as well as some marketing material.
Currently, I am working at Load King Industries as a Project Manager and Design Lead. We are a turn-key store package provider with clients ranging from local restaurants owners to franchisees all over the world. Specifically, I have worked with Brix Holdings company on a variety of stores, Starbucks custom retail stores, and a few other local brands.
I consider myself a decision-oriented individual who is very dedicated to the improvement of the built environment through sustainable architectural means.
