In 2011 I completed a Masters of Architecture (Professional) from The University of Auckland, School of Architecture and Planning. Prior to this I achieved a Bachelor of Achitectural Studies at the same institution. I have spent 2012 working as an Architectural Graduate at two different atchitecture firms in Auckland, New Zealand - Achitectus and Brewer Davidson Architects .
I am capable in CAD, image processing and 3D design programs such as the Adobe design suite, Rhinoceros, 3DS Max and Sketchup, AutoCAD, ArchiCAD. I consider myself as IT literate and have taught myself all of the software I am currently using. I am able to learn further programs as required. I am also able to make models, and am able to use digital fabrication and rapid prototyping techniques with tools such as the lazer cutter, CNC 3d router, and 3d Printer. I keep a website, and have the knowledge to create and update a blog, or simple website. I am also a keen photographer, and have skills in post processing, as well as large format printing.
