statement of intent Seeking to obtain a challenging technical support posi on in a dynamic and energe c company, an interes ng posi on with a growing company, and increase personal technical eec veness. I have recently earned my Bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University in Communica on with a German minor. Because of my background, I enjoy trying new things and mee ng new people. I have been on the Dean’s list mul ple mes and achieved a high GPA throughout my me at Arizona State University. While a ending the University, I studied Architecture, design, mul media, and Sustainability. Though I have held down 24 separate posi ons since I was 9 years old, I s ll remain enthusias c about each new opportunity. Most recently, I worked at an architectural design firm in Phoenix where I gained most of my architectural experience. At the design firm, I gained valuable knowledge in both 2D and 3D CAD programs. My knowledge extends from being able to handle shop drawings to pu ng together construc on documents on mul ple pla orms. I have also had experience in 3D Studio Max in both anima on and s ll renderings for presenta on purposes. The passion of designing new solu ons to complex challenges creates an overwhelming inspira on for me, which allows me to excel.

design by hand

As with most educa onal se ngs 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 be er feel of the project.

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 dra ing

through the use of revit architecture the following examples are produced as construc on document details. the details followed the project from the schema c to construc on phase.





a small block in shanghai required revitaliza on 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.

2010 - 2011


through the explora on of new so ware and new materials, the following renderings were developed to display capabili es. each rendering was modeled in one program and rendered in another.

2010 - 2011



raw outputs

out of 3Ds MAX, these renderings were created for dierent projects ranging from anima ons to compe on design. all of the following renderings are raw from one program.



2010 - 2011

up close

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




anima ons

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