As an architecture student with a background in business administration and in artwork, I am a very well rounded person. I am looking for a firm that is well balanced when it comes to work and play. I understand the importance of looking and acting professional when necessary, and can be very outgoing during 'down' time. In the last 10 years I have worked in a nursing home, in college dining halls, in an office, and in a sports stadium which has given me the opportunity to work with many different people. The difficulty of an online profile is that you cannot put your personality in it. Don't forget to check out my online portfolio, it is updated on a regular basis.
