I have received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Interior Design from Michigan State University. I am seeking a Interior Design position in the area for Southern California.

I have worked at Michigan State University's Engineering and Architectural Services (EAS) and I have been employed for over  two years. My responsibilities included developing architectural plans for current renovations on campus, researching building codes, and providing creative ideas to design issues. Over the past two years I have worked on over 30 projects encompassing food services, lecture halls, laboratories, and offices. 

I feel that my diverse experience working on numerous architectural projects, extensive knowledge of computer drafting, and my ability to work with various disciplines, has provided me with the skills necessary to substantially contribute as an Interior Designer.
