I am recent graduate of the Master program at Miami University looking to jump start my career. Building upon my job experiences from my undergraduate program at the University of Cincinnati I am looking to continue my path to my architectural license in a large metropolitan area.

Hailing from the rural lands of Northwest Ohio I jumped at the chance to move to the city for my college career. I was eager to learn all I could in my chosen major and new city. That sense of eagerness to learn is still with me. My favorite classes were architecture history as well as the elective classes I took that covered aspects of films and cultures.

Some of my biggest interests outside of design are film and travel. I love classic Hollywood as well as foreign films. My interest in film is so great that my Netflix dvd queue is maxed out at 500. My co-op experiences in my undergrad allowed me to travel to new places. When I lived in Hilton Head, SC I made an effort to explore the nearby area from Savannah to Charleston, to Atlanta and St. Augustine. Studio trips also helped from the 2nd year trip to Chicago, the 3rd year trip to New York, and the graduate trip to Dallas. My biggest trip so far was after my graduation from UC; my roommate and I traveled through 12 European cities. It was a trip that reaffirmed my love of architecture and travel.

So far my work experiences have been at smaller firms. The positive of working at smaller firms allowed me to be involved in, to some degree, with various aspects of a project. My need to fulfill my IDP hours is also a driving force for me wanting to try my hand at different aspects of the office.
