I am a twenty nine year old designer from Philadelphia, PA with a five year bachelor's degree from Philadelphia University, currently looking a new opportunity with a like minded firm where I can lend all my services to a larger cause.  Since graduating I have undertaken numerous traditional roles within firms in Princeton, and Philadelphia, while also expanding my skills and experience by working for carpenters and small design build companies.  I have strong beliefs that in order to be an effective designer one must be familiar with general construction practices, as well as millwork/fabrication in order to control product, and cost for the client.  What I can offer a future employer, is the ability to take a project from initial meeting to completion, with experience in: site survey/as builts, space planning, DD/CD sets, material sourcing/selection, onsite coordination, and design/fabricate/install millwork.
