Waterford, MI, US



Graduated this past May with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture Studies from Arizona State University. I am currently seeking a job with an architecture and/or construction firm that will enable me to take on responsibilities, get involved in all phases of the design process and a provide me with challenging but rewarding experience. 

During my time at Arizona State University I was active member of Alpha Rho Chi, Professional Co-ed Fraternity for Architecture and the Allied Arts and AIAS. I held many positions that helped me grow as a person and become a leader.

 I am passionate about anything that I put my mind to and life in general. I pride myself on being an energetic and enthusiastic person who works strongly as a team member and leader. I am a very motivated leader, communicator, and am always willing to provide help/service in any situation. No matter what I remain with a positive attitude, and am responsible and reliable. I can work well under pressure, take direction and give input. Finally I remain to be a creative and innovative thinker who enjoys learning and applying newly learned material to life and projects.

I believe good design whether it be 2D or 3D is that which addresses every sense of the body. Good design makes you want to touch and interact with it and engages your sight through its complexity or even because of its simplicity. It could have a soundtrack that reflects the energetic frequency of the space or piece, as well as a scent and even taste as we imagine a design being cool and metallic, warm and woody, fresh and sparkling. Above all believe good design stirs an inexplicable feeling in our subconscious, allowing our past experiences and emotions to inform our experience of the design and gives it a personality of it's own.
