Architectural Designer Drafter Design Intern

Architectural design + drafting for a licensed architect/ firm

I am enthusiastic to pursue a career with a Vermont design firm and leave a positive mark on the built environment. With the wisdom gained only by trying, failing and succeeding at many endeavors; and the unique, nuanced skills and knowledge to show for it, I will add insight, productivity and momentum to your firm. I have a range of experience: from architectural and landscape design, construction drawing, carpentry and woodworking, to business management, graphic design, websites and many additional marketing functions. These attributes make me a versatile, creative, and pragmatic team member.

When I was 16 I started a landscaping company and continued building that business as an undergraduate at Norwich University. I poured years of effort into this venture, and received the dividends of personal growth and self-discipline. After a decade of landscape design-build projects, I sold the company in pursuit of my architectural passion.

In 2014 I was a team member for the Associated Schools of Construction competition. The mission was to deliver a design-bid proposal for a 42,000-square foot recreational facility, complete with construction drawings, renderings, cost breakdowns, timelines, and energy models. We accomplished all of this within a 30 hour window. I learned the value of persistence, and a greater appreciation for accurate, timely deliverables.
In 2014 I was part of the design build team that produced the “Archistream” converting a 1969’ Airstream Globetrotter into a mobile art gallery. This piece was featured in a number of exhibits throughout the US and was awarded the AIAVT Excellence in Architecture Award.

I have 2+ years experience in graphic design and marketing, where I facilitated website, email, print, and social media design and marketing for two different companies. Desiring a deeper understanding of construction methods, I spent 2 years working with 3 different contractors on residential and commercial projects. I’m excited to learn more about your practice and show you what I will bring to the table:
