Dominique La France

Oxnard, CA, US



I currently am seeking opportunities in architecture, construction and design related fields. I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor's of Architecture and an Italian Studies minor. Through a rigorous design program, I have honed my digital, analog and shop skills. I also have knowledge and experience with lighting and sound systems seen in technical theater.

I've lived several places overseas and traveled extensively. I believe these experiences of culture and new places have opened my eyes to the wide scope of design that can exist, as well as helped me to understand people better.
