Michael Elsman

Pittsburgh, PA, US



I am an Architect and PSU Graduate with an overwhelming passion for architecture and design. I have carried this passion throughout my life and have channeled that passion into beginning a career in Architecture.

Through school and professional growth I have developed strong design capabilities. I am a skilled computer technician in a wide rage of computer programs, both graphical and other systems; efficient researcher; skilled illustrator and visual communicator; and capable designer. I can communicate ideas clearly through different mediums and situations. I am a determined worker that can push projects to completion while still managing other responsibilities and assignments.

I am licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and I am looking towards LEED certification and further study in areas of green design. I am interested in the possibility of practicing in many different areas of the architecture profession. I am happy working on residential renovations that require me to investigate the nuts and bolts of construction, but I'm also interested in large-scale urban development and the effects of architecture on the community as a whole. Whether it is the detail of two materials coming together or the complex interactions of a community united by architecture I am eager to develop a career that creates a better world for my clients.
