Lebanon, PA, US



I am a recent graduate of Virginia Tech, having earned my Bachelor of Architecture. I am currently seeking employment as an intern at an architecture firm which promotes detail-oriented, client-based design. I am anxious to begin acquiring my IDP hours; it is important to me to understand architecture from all facets of the industry. I have 5 years of academic experience using 3D modeling software. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to easily pick up new software. I am an eager learner but I also am independently motivated to seek out information for myself. I enjoy a good challenge and get excited by finding new problems to solve.
