In May 2013, I received my Master’s degree in Architecture from Texas A&M University where my final study qualified as one of the top five graduate level projects. I am currently working as an intern at Gage/Clemenceau Architects in New York City. My responsibilities have included modeling, schematic design, rendering, research, composing/cataloguing past projects and marketing support. My internship concludes later this month. At this point I will be ready to pursue a professional career in architecture and continue to expand my horizons with regard to design.
I am proficient in Maya, Rhino, AutoCad, Zbrush, Sketchup, Maxwell, Keyshot and Adobe Creative Suite. I also have experience in Abaqus, MasterCam CAD/CAM, and Pepakura. I have a strong interest in all areas of design including, project management, proposal development, and seeing a project from inception through to construction.

University Studies was essentially one main area of focus (architecture) and two minors (business and creative studies). I did not discover architecture until relatively late in my academic career when I had already accrued various credit hours from different areas of study. I decided to pool these credit hours together towards the University Studies degree in order to graduate and apply to graduate school for architecture.
