Lufkin, TX, US



I was born and raised in East Texas. I went to architecture school in San Antonio, Texas and have been working in Fort Worth, Texas for the last 4 years. I recently moved back to East Texas and am now looking for a job elsewhere. I am very interested in seeking employment outside the state of Texas and seeing what the rest of the country has to offer. If a job were to require travel, I would be very excited about that opportunity. I am a hard working, easy to get along with guy that enjoys architecture, design and photography. I have always thought that I would find a unique way to put my masters degree in architecture to work and  have yet to find it. I love the field of architecture and everything that it has to offer and I absolutely cannot wait until I find the job that makes me smile when I wake up in the morning.
