Dennis Murphy

New York, NY, US



I graduated from the Cooper Union School of Architecture in 2009. Since then I have worked in several positions, most recently as a Design Liaison for the NYC Department of Design and Construction. 

I am a LEED Green Associate and would like to pursue becoming a LEED AP in Building Design and Construction. I have registered over 2,000 hours with the NCARB Intern Development Program and am working to become a licensed architect.

I am currently looking for gainful employment and professional experience to grow as a young and enthusiastic architect. I am hard-working, motivated and curious and looking to take on new challenges.
