About 

Hi, 

I recently graduated with my Master in Architecture (M.Arch) from the Parsons School of Constructed Environments at The New School. At the moment, I’m looking for my first design position with an architecture firm.

During my studies, I’ve focused on environmental and parametric design. I found that environmental design has helped me bring a sense of purpose and meaning into my designs. And with parametric design I’ve found a tool to execute on that vision. I’m hoping to contribute, as well as hone, those skills in my next challenge.

Before I started studying Architecture, I completed Master degrees in Computer Science and Business, and had a 9 year career in Supply Chain Management. This path has instilled me with a wide set of analytical and real-world problem-solving skills that have proven to be extremely useful while studying architecture. 

I certainly enjoyed aspects of that career, but I also realized it didn’t energize me like my interest in architecture and design did. After a period of introspection and deepening explorations in architecture, I decided to start my M.Arch degree at Parsons in 2018.

In the three years since going back to school, I’ve found in architecture a means of contribution and self-expression. I love learning new things and there has been no shortage of that on this journey.

I find it rewarding to share that knowledge with others, as it brings me a deeper understanding of the particular subject. During my previous career, I’ve led power-user groups and taught workshops. Now, throughout my architecture studies I have taught and tutored design software, design studios, and environmental design.

If that is the kind of profile that would fit within your organization, I would welcome the opportunity to bring those skills to your firm.
