As a recent Masters in Architecture graduate, I am seeking a position in a full service architecture firm to further my education with professional experience, and to ensure a trajectory dedicated toward architectural licensure.  My six years of academic investment have provided me the opportunity to question and investigate issues of disciplinarity within the realm of architecture; a position in an architecture firm will harness new skillsets, perspectives, and attitudes regarding the study and practice of architecture, as both a discipline and a profession.
