After studying architecture from an art historical perspective in college, I have been recently working in book publishing. I am now looking to get back into the architecture/urban planning field, and am looking for opportunities to help reorient myself and see the industries first hand.
Bedford/St. Martin's, New York, NY, US, Editorial Assistant
Primarily, I correspond with clients and vendors, and assist in assembling book content. I also proofread, organize myriad files, do image research, and obtain permission to print text and photos. Additionally, I serve as the resident internet super sleuth.
Melcher Media, New York, NY, US, Editorial Intern
In this position, I proofread book content, worked with book designers and authors to perfect the text and design of the book, and did whatever other tasks needed doing. This means I created and maintained a database, answered phones, greeted guests, ordered office supplies, handled emergencies when they came up, and ran errands. In this role, I became a jack-of-all-trades.
Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT, US, Bachelors, American Studies
Within my American Studies major, I concentrated on architecture and urbanism through art history classes, and history classes that focused on the development of cities. This means that I know about the architectural histories of Chicago and New York, theories of planned communities, the origins of the pastoral movement in the US, and a fair amount of American history. I am still hungry to learn more, and reading all the time to satiate this hunger.
