I recently have graduated from Hampton University where I have received my Masters degree in Architecture this pass May (2012). I currently am looking for a job position in the field of  architecture and or planning.

My area of interest are mainly sustainability and LEED, Interior Architecture, Urban Design and Urban Planning. I am currently working on receiving my LEED certification and hope to one day become a licensed architect as well. I enjoy exploring new programs through rendering and model making. In my free time I enjoy sketching, water coloring and hand rendering using multimedia skills ( such as combining digital programs with prisma markers or water coloring)

Hampton University, Hampton, VA, US, MArch, Architecture

Learning skill of all aspects of architecture. From history, theories, design, construction, cost, interior, urban planning, etc. This program helps not only prepare you for designing but also helps you to face the real world once you come upon graduation when working in a firm. You develop and complete a thesis which prepares you for the focus upon long projects and research in critical and extensive thinking. The requirement of studying abroad for the summer to opens one mind about international architectual and urban problems that one has to help solve through architecture as a group is an eye opener for most.
