Chicago, IL, US



I graduated from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in December 2010 with a degree in Architectural Studies.  I currently work as a Restaurant Manager along with having two internships.  One internship is for LISC Milwaukee (Local Initiative Support Corporation), which helps revitalize communities by distributing grants to small business owners and developers.  The other internship is for Reliable Builders located in Aurora, IL where i use AutoCAD and Microstation to create Architectural drawings for various projects.

In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, bicycling, and hope to some day train for an Iron Man competition.  I am a dedicated and trust worthy person.  I always work to become better at everything I do.
