I am a recent graduate of the Master of Architecture program at Cornell University.  I am seeking a position in a progressive design firm developing innovative solutions to solve architectural and environmental design challenges.

I have been associated with the field of architecture for many years now, although my passion for the built environment spans a lifetime. I have broad experiences that have prepared me well for the corporate architectural design field. Through my academic studies I have honed my ability to understand complex design problems.  As a Junior Designer for an architectural firm in Los Angeles, I produced Programming, Schematic Design (SD) and Design Development (DD) phase concepts, sketches, CAD drawings, study models and 3D illustrations for a number of design projects.  My academic and professional work experience has strengthened my ability to juggle many responsibilities and prioritize tasks, handle pressure, and communicate effectively with my supervisors and co-workers.

I have acquired considerable managerial and teamwork experience as a member of the United States military.  As a Surface Warfare Officer (SWO) onboard a U.S. Navy destroyer, I managed a department of 15 men in the testing, development, maintenance and deployment of million-dollar strategic weapon systems to the Persian Gulf.  As a Naval Cryptologist, I made significant contributions to improving detection accuracy and timely reporting of classified intelligence information to the highest levels of government.

Working with a dynamic and team-oriented company in a challenging position requires the high level of energy, responsibility, and creativity I have demonstrated in my academic and work experiences.  I would welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss my qualifications with you further.  

Thank you.
