I am a young, ambitious, dedicated, and very appreciative designer.  I am from a beautiful town/community in the middle of nowhere, Columbia, MO where life is nicely paced and the people are kind.  My two internships in the Architectural Field have taught me a lot about the office experience and working within a team- which can be fun and very productive if done right.  I've also learned how dire good-communication and negotiating sills are in even a medium sized office setting.

I will be graduating from THE Savannah College of Art & Design in May of '12 with a degree in Architecture and a minor in Electronic Design.  That just basically means I know every software related to design and architecture (no web).  I have extensive experience (10+yrs) in AutoCad, Rhino, Adobe PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign.  I can't forget the big hitters of course, Revit, 3dsMax, Grasshopper, Vasari, SolidWorks.  I absolutely love the design process and consider the feeling you get after a design-well-done to be one of the greatest feelings on Earth.

I'm a hungry designer looking to settle down with a nice firm in a nice city.

Happy Building!
