I have recently graduated with my Bachelor’s in Architecture from the University at Buffalo with a Minor in Environmental Design. I desire to work in a growing firm that values my perspective that design never stops.  With global efforts focusing more and more on environmental responsibility, my desire is to reach beyond exploring the relationship between inhabitants and their environment and blurring the line between the built and natural environment.  As a logical progression, I believe that there will be an increasing demand for incorporating natural elements into the built environment.

My strengths lie in design and graphics.  Ability to communicate graphically, in presentations, and writing.  I enjoy working in a collaborate environment and have demonstrated the ability to meet deadlines. I am extremely hard working and detail oriented. I look forward to an opportunity with a reputable organization to use my experience and education in the field of architecture, especially sustainable design, lighting, and acoustics.
