I find it extremely beneficial and positive to create a chance that allows for growth in the practice of architecture, graphic design, construction, and writing. I was raised working on construction sites dealing first hand with the details of residential construction.  Going to school at the university level I broadened my knowledge in the field of architecture, from construction site to high design mixed with the arts.  As a student, I was approached by Professors to work outside the classroom as an intern, providing me with the freedom to develop, design, invent, construct and fabricate with some of the most astute and imaginative minds.  It was one of the most collaborative, graphic enhancing, and fast paced junctures of my life. 

I thrive off design, intellect, and positivity.  I hope to find an opportunity in the profession of design, architecture, and art that will allow me to give all my energy and expand the skills I have, and those I hope to gain through experience.
