About 

I am currently enrolled in Washington University in St. Louis' undergraduate architecture program. I am on track to graduate this May, and am looking for a full time internship, hopefully to start as soon as possible after graduating. My concentration is in architecture, but I am also interested in interiors and landscaping.

I am proficient in Rhinoceros 3D, AutoCAD, SketchUp, Adobe Creative Suite, and Microsoft Office, and have some knowledge of Revit. I also have experience in hand drafting and building physical models.
