I am currently a Master of Architecture student in my last semester at North Carolina State University.  I graduated in May of 2010 with my Bachelors of Environmental Design degree in architecture from NC State and  I immediately went back to school to work on my Masters of Architecture degree.   I am a very motivated and passionate designer looking for an opportunity to gain insight and knowledge into the daily practice of architecture.  

Some of my skills are:

  • Excellent skills in computer drafting, imaging, 3D digital and physical modeling, as well as hand drawing and water color rendering,
  • Confidence in my ability to design and relay my ideas
  • Hard working and filled with determination
  • Team player who strives for perfection
  • Always eager to gain new knowledge in the field of architecture especially the construction process
