While working towards a Masters in Architecture, and furthering my education with professional experience I have explored and strengthened my skills within the field. Fine-tuning my understanding of scale and space and leading to my expertise in model-making, hand drawing, computer rendering, code, and construction administration. I am seeking a position as a full-time junior architect to challenge my skills and continue to immerse myself in the profession of the built environment.

Heavy use of sketching/ hand drawings, Sketchup, Lumion, and Photoshop was used.
