I am eager to learn and a quick learner for areas where I have little experience. With a healthy sense of humor and a strong work ethic, I am an especially motivated person who is very passionate about Architecture. I am diligent and determined and I thoroughly take pleasure in studying and practicing Architecture. I value the relationship I have with others and have worked well with a variety of people. I know that my creativity, resourcefulness, and drive are qualities that make me a distinctive employee.
