As a recent graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, I am looking to employ and expand my architectural skills as a team player working within all aspects of the design and building professions.  During my education, I was part of the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS President 2010) and the Student Dean Advisory Council.  I also worked as an undergraduate grader for Building Systems and Environments in the spring of 2011, a class focused on mechanical systems and sustainable development.
