Combines hands on construction background wiht formal architectural training and leadership experience as Assistant Project Manager and Architectural Designer. Known as a hard worker who willingly takes on additional responsibility while juggling multiple projects. Deep understanding of construction issues and ability to develop rapport with Engineers and Contractors. Background includes residential, commercial and interiors.

My passion for Architecture and Design is long standing and my well-rounded background makes me an

excellent candidate for any position. I secured a Design Internship with STA Architecture Group in the

summer of my first Graduate year, and gained exposure to the industry, while enhancing the coordination

between trades and supplementing it with a more streamline approach. I have also held an Assistant

Project Manager position with Infinity Construction Services where I learned hands on construction

techniques, multi-disciplinary tasks and worked on creating a seamless association. Complimentary to

these positions, I have also worked as an Architectural Designer/ Junior Designer with The Architects

Group (TAG) where I have gained significant exposure and developed a strong work ethic in the

commercial and retail fields of deign.
