About 

I am an architectural- and digital media-design student looking for a full-time internship opportunity at your firm. I am enrolled within the Centre for Digital Media's Masters of Digital Media program here in Vancouver. This internship would be part of my degree requirements, and would further my career as an aspiring architect.

I have a 5-year Bachelor's of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR, which taught me sustainable architectural design practices. My architectural design process begins by rigorously researching the site and its relevant case studies. To understand key design problems and generate solutions, I rapidly sketch and model my ideas, critiquing them internally, and with others, as I go. Since I am a positive collaborator, I eagerly push myself to help others and learn from them.

At the Centre for Digital Media, I investigated the roles game development, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality can play within the architecture profession. I believe that these industries offer technology that can help our clients, and the public, understand an architect's design intent in new and exciting ways.
