I am a recent graduate of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Studies. While enrolled in the Architectural Studies program at Kent State University, I learned many aspects of architectural design from drafting/ drawing using different mix media techniques to designing various architectural projects including urban design to graphic design. I embrace every aspect and element of design; you can see the passion for design in my portfolio. I have attached my current portfolio and resume to my Linkedin page.  I have attached the link to my online portfolio as well.

I am currently employed at Unispace in Columbus, Ohio. Unispace is a leading global strategic design practice specializing in the development and implementation of strategies and design solutions for commercial workplaces across a wide variety of industries. While employed at Unispace I am developing the skills that are required to complete a project from schematic design to construction documents to the beginning of construction. Throughout a project I do not only aid in design development but also work with a construction team that will help me develop the skills that I need to prepare me to reach my career goals.

I have used many computer programs from AutoCAD to Revit, from SketchUp to Photoshop. On a day-to-day basis I currently use Revit and AutoCAD as my primary CAD programs. I also use 3DS Max and Vray to complete the renderings for the Unispace office. I am a very quick learner and if there is something that I am not familiar with I will make it my number one priority to learn it. 

I am looking to advance my career in architectural and interior design by learning and working under an architect and an interior designer to one day become an interior architect.
