In the architectural profession, both as a student and a professional, I have learned a great deal about
the creative, technical and business aspects of an architectural firm. As a student, I explored many
different types of design and media, both traditional and digital. Professionally, I have developed the
ability to work with limited direction and prioritize multiple ongoing tasks. I pride myself on being
extremely detail oriented, in both design and documentation, and focus on getting things right the first
time to keep change orders to a minimum. I hold a very high standard for my own work, as it is not only
a representation of myself, but also a representation of the people around me.
