Western Michigan University

Completed four semesters of undergraduate study.


I used Synchro as part of my final project at Michigan State. I am very familiar with the concepts and basic elements of the program.
I used AutoCad frequently during my internships and throughout high school and college. I am very proficient in 2D drawing and have done a little 3D work.
Microsoft Office
Includes Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.  I am very proficient in Word and Excel and have a good knowledge of Powerpoint.  I have also done a little database work in Access.


I am looking for a postion where I can learn and prepare to become a P.E.,  and a company that can provide opportunities for advancement.

I am excited to take on challenging jobs.  I am confident I can apply what I know and learn quickly to be a productive member of any team.


I enjoy many sports including hockey and college basketball in paticular.  I enjoy most anything that includes a challenge.  I like staying active by running and lifting weights.  I also enjoy relaxing by watching tv and playing video games.
