I have always done well working in teams, both as a lead and following directions. My goals have always been to meet project deadlines and to provide excellent and meaningful design. 

I have been involved in every stage of design, from Schematic Design through Construction, and have also worked on a wide variety of project types, giving me a solid knowledge of the construction process. I feel that every project I work on can teach me more about design, and improve my process.

I continually look to increase my knowledge and experience, while still expanding my personal and technical skills.

I am actively pursuing licensure, and only have 1 exam left.
