About 

I am writing to express my interest in the Architect position with your company. I am very excited about the possibility of working for a reputable and growing company where I will have the opportunity to work on architectural design and planning in a professional setting. With my degree in Architecture and my hands-on experience in this field, I am confident that I have those specific qualities that you are looking for in a candidate.

Over the past two years I have been employed as a Freelance Architectural Designer where I have worked on a variety of residential, commercial, and retail mixed-use projects in the education, and healthcare sectors. Since pursuing freelance work, I have managed projects from the initial design stage right through to completion. My resume shows my knowledge of structural design, material resolution and building economics, as well as my ability to utilize AutoCAD, Sketchup, Revit, Photoshop, Adobe Suite, Rhinoceros 3D, Lumion, Microsoft Office, and other graphics communication programs.

I am a dynamic and ambitious designer who possesses the design and development flair needed to plan, coordinate and be involved in all phases of an architectural project
