My design strategy includes research, programming, pre-designing and schematics, development, and presentation. My skills include time management, collaboration and communication, and hand sketching. I have technical skills in Autodesk (AutoCAD Architecture and Revit Architecture), Abode (InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator), Microsoft (Word, Excel, and Powerpoint), Rhino 3D and Icovia. I have tutored a four month AutoCAD course assisting a professor at Indiana University.
