I am a recent graduate from Carnegie Mellon University, looking for a full-time position as a entry level/junior architect. In my five years in school, I focused on design studio, but also pursued interests in woodworking, digital fabrication and photography.
I have had a lot of experience with collaboration, and thrive when working on projects with a team of designers. I am hard-working, diligent, and a fast learner; what I don’t know I try to learn as quickly as possible. I understand the importance of adhering to a strict schedule and budget and can produce work quickly and efficiently.
