I received a Bachelor's of Environmental Design degree in May 2011 from North Carolina State University and earned my Bachelors of Architecture professional degree in May 2012. In addition to architecture studios, I had the opportunity to pursue other interests by taking graphic design and art courses. Following graduation I traveled to New York to explore different creative outlets. While there, I contributed to a lifestyle magazine start- up, assisted at a mainstream magazine, and gained public relations experience with a fashion label. These experiences not only allowed me to contribute creatively in various facets, but exposed me to a variety of workplace dynamics. Upon my return to North Carolina I began work on a retail upfit project in Raleigh. I was able to apply concepts I learned from my previous work to direct space planning decisions. This project afforded me the opportunity to be hands- on, as I also managed the project through construction. I am interested in working for a multidisciplinary design firm where I can supplement my learned skills with professional experience in a creative setting.
