Hello! My name is Sam Rubenstein. I'm a New York based Architectural Designer with 2 years of experience and an M.Arch from an accredited program looking for an opportunity in a collaborative, hands on work environment in the world of Design-Build. I'm an ambitious, hard worker with a self-starter, easy to approach attitude.

My goals are always to act as the guide in the design process. To create buildings that are both unique and harmonious with the surrounding community. I have experience with steel and wood-working as well as with many architectural representation software programs including Revit, AutoCad and Adobe Creative Suite. I am always in a position to learn from others and provide my knowledge to team members and clients.

Thank you for your time.
