Designer at heart, entrepreneur at mind.

As a recent graduate of Kansas State University with a Bachelors in Architectural Planning and Design, it is my goal to begin my career in the design field.  This opportunity will enable me to nurture my passion for design with a collaborative environment and grow as a professional with others who share a similar passion.

Hard work and commitment to my goals have broadened my perspective of what the world has to offer and what society needs.  The experiences gained during my time at Kansas State have bonded with my athletic background, various leadership opportunities and a strong focus on family values to form a solid understanding of what it means to work within a team, assume a leadership role, take initiative and see projects through to completion. 

A core system of values has been instilled in me, which have created a work ethic many will rival, but will find difficult to match.  Committed to my personal development and growth in the field, as well as, to my fellow designers, I am always open to constructive criticism and have the ability to reciprocate on a professional basis.

Attached is my most recent resume.  The links below provide a more in depth biography and some examples of my recent work.  Please take a moment to review my work.

(currently in construction mode but please take a brief look at the design thus far)

As you can tell, I am a very diverse designer with a strong passion towards pushing my design limits and personal expectations.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the chance to grow with your company.

Thank you very much for your time.
