 As a graduate of the Master of Architecture program at The University of Kansas School of Architecture, I believe my academic background, in conjunction with extensive work experience in project management and building construction, and awarded expertise in kitchen design, has provided me with the resources essential to add value to any intern development program, and advance my education as a young professional as I work towards my architectural license.

During my student career at The University of Kansas and my professional time in St. Louis, I have continued to hone my computer proficiencies, gain an abundance of on-site construction experience, and develop personal selling skills. I am extremely adept in such programs as: Revit Architecture, SketchUp (VRay), AutoCAD, Photoshop, InDesign, and hold familiarity in SolidWorks, and Rhino3D. I have spent much of my post graduate time seeking to learn as much from each occupational experience I have embarked on, in order to bring as much unique know-how as possible to potential future employers. Such experiences include computer design/ construction, tremendous expertise in kitchen design, and residential project management. I am particularly intrigued with computer aided design, however, at times prefer to design by hand in order to further absorb the intricacies of a design scheme; utilizing my ability in hand rendering.

My design philosophy of organization, creativity, teamwork, and sense of responsibility is something I hold dear, and  wish to work with a firm that holds the same values. I believe I would flourish in such an environment, and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications more fully, as well as describe ways in which I can contribute to your design team.
