I am a RIBA Part II architectural assistant from University of Liverpool, recently graduating with a First Class Honours degree.

I have a track record of producing precise and clean drawings to tight deadlines for print and online submissions and I excel at working in fast-paced environments under considerable pressure.

I have continuously managed to upgrade my skills in terms of problem solving and practical application of architectural designing and am keen to make use of the experience I have gained during my studies.

I am very proficient in AutoCAD, SketchUp and Adobe Creative Suite, I am confident in learning new software and am willing to learn programs where required.

I am now looking to work on new exciting projects and take the step up into a full time Part II Architectural Assistant position that will allow me to pursue a bigger role in projects and my Part III examinations.
