Nicole's Closet LLC, Small Business Manager

Previously I had worked with the owner of the small eBay business to organize her inventory, create an inventory system to easily locate and tag items and to implement the inventory system for her items. I have now been working to present her items on the website by photographing them to show specific details, writing descriptions to set an item apart from others of the same and to eventually ship items when sold. I strive to create a cohesive online presence for the listings. I am working with the owner to create a brand image to eventually expand her business as well.

Parkview Gourmet, Design Assistant

Created current condition plans for a retail space purchased by the store owner. I completed demolition plans for the city and proposed different design options to the owner based on his need for retail space, kitchen and office. I worked with him on the demolition and build-out of the new space to meet an opening deadline to limit the amount of time the store had to be closed.

zerolaboffice, Intern Architect

Worked as a summer intern architect for a boutique firm in Shanghai, China. I was responsible for working with one of the partners on the design details for a curtain wall of a large office building in Beijing, China. In addition to the specific details, we also chose glass colors, and the materials and colors for the facade. I also spend time working on a quick interiors project for an office building build-out to be completed in two weeks. I worked on preliminary designs for a residential tower conversion into luxury lofts, which posed an additional challenge of learning the specific domestic rooms required by the Chinese culture compared with the American culture.
