statement of intent Seeking to obtain a challenging technical support position in a dynamic and energetic company, an interesting position with a growing company, and increase personal technical effectiveness. I have recently earned my Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University in Communication with a German minor. Because of my background, I enjoy trying new things and meeting new people. I have been on the Dean’s list multiple times and achieved a high GPA throughout my time at Arizona State University. While attending the University, I studied Architecture, design, multimedia, and Sustainability. Though I have held down 27 separate positions since I was 9 years old, I still remain enthusiastic about each new opportunity. Most recently, I worked at an architectural design firm in Phoenix and Salt Lake City where I gained most of my architectural experience. At the design firms, I gained valuable knowledge in both 2D and 3D CAD programs. My knowledge extends from being able to handle shop drawings to putting together construction documents on multiple platforms. I have also had experience in 3D Studio Max in both animation and still renderings for presentation purposes. The passion of designing new solutions to complex challenges creates an overwhelming inspiration for me, which allows me to excel.

design by hand

As with most educational settings the first part of the curriculum revolves around placing “real world� into comprehensible hand drawings. Conceptual design is also done by hand, so that the designer is able to have a better feel of the project.

after the design is set in stone, the time has come to take the ideas, hopes, and dreams and form a solid model to display the intentions. the intention of these models were to bring the drawings to life.

conceptual thinking

beyond thinking about how people interact with the space, one must venture outward and begin to think about how technology interacts with space and people.

revit drafting

through the use of revit architecture the following examples are produced as construction document details. the details followed the project from the schematic to construction phase.





a small block in shanghai required revitalization to increase urban infill and promote sustainable living. this project was designed to combine the beauty of the natural landscape meshing with the sustainability of the future urban world.


Team: Michael Perez competitive



the name of the game is sustainability and the method is future mobility. this project represents the mesh of luxury, gratification and sustainability by creating urban infill.

Team: Ted Wright / Brandon Kunkel / Michael Perez 13




this competition required the research of how sound works and creating a tranquil environment which users can interact and become lost in thought.


Team: Ted Wright / Michael Perez




these competitions required a second look at environments and hidden gems which were brought to life in these projects. the idea was to preserve the intentions of the future users as well as preserving the environment.

2010 - 2011


through the exploration of new software and new materials, the following renderings were developed to display capabilities. each rendering was modeled in one program and rendered in another.

2010 - 2011



raw outputs

out of 3Ds MAX, these renderings were created for different projects ranging from animations to competition design. all of the following renderings are raw from one program.

up close

beyond the modeling of massive structures, these renderings take a closer look at material and the beauty of detail.





using various programs architecture and design meets animation and film in order to display conceptual designs and fun ideas.
