I am a passionate, creative and dedicated person who is looking for a full-time position as an intern architect in a firm where I can be challenged and grow as a designer and technical architect.  
I enjoy and work well in collaborative and team environments but I also have the confidence ability to take on projects on my own. I have proven with the various collaborative and freelance projects I have been involved with.

The new and unfamiliar motivates me to learn and to spread knowledge to others. Which is why I continue to learn new software and teach them.

        • Residential
        • Social gathering spaces
        • Interiors
        • Renovations, expansions and conversions

My experience with Architecture and Construction:
        • Consulting
        • Designing
             • Condo units
             • Single family homes
        • Client meetings
        • Drafting and the preparation of permit drawings
        • Product Research

My experience with Project Management    
        • Managing a marketing team and the marketing efforts for the Toronto Urban Photography                         Festival
             • Social media marketing
             • Experiential marketing
             • Print media
I am registered as an Intern Architect with the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA) and I am eligible to work in European Union countries, Canada and the United States.
