About 

I am an architecture student at Columbia GSAPP committed to a career at the forefront of contemporary architecture. I believe that architecture can act as a catalyst for social and cultural change and try to instill this belief in all of my projects. I am currently seeking job opportunities in New York City with the view to work on ambitious urban projects with socially minded design solutions.

Architecture has been at the center of my life for as long as I can remember and I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best architectural talents around the world. During my final year at undergrad I was one of eight Irish architecture students selected to conduct a Sino-Irish design workshop with grad students at Tongji University in Shanghai. 

I was then hired by Scott Tallon Walker Architects, where I worked on a 6-person design team to propose a new building for Apple’s European headquarters in Cork, Ireland. While there, I learned what it takes to realize a highly complex building while working with a design team at the cutting edge of the profession and dealing with one of the most well-known and demanding companies in the world.
I believe that I will be a valuable addition to any design environment and look forward to expanding my own skill-set while working as a small part of a greater ambition. 

Relevant Specialties:

Drawing – I have advanced skills in Rhino, Grasshopper, AutoCAD and the Adobe Suite and have intermediate Revit and 3DsMax skills. Hand drawing also plays a huge part in my design process.

Modelling – I have years of experience creating hand-crafted models for both of these purposes as well as the ability to operate CNC milling, 3D printing and laser cutting machinery.

Administrative – I am a friendly and approachable person who recognizes the importance of dealing with clients and professionals from a variety of backgrounds. I am also proficient in the Microsoft Office Suite
