"I'm an architectural designer by day, graphic designer/photographer by night. I love creative projects, but also have a calculated side of myself that enjoys editing (words/images) and spreadsheets. I've taught design software to interior design college students, built my own computers, led design studios, reviewed student work...so there isn't much that I chose to avoid.
I'm currently working for a civil engineer/planner as an urban designer, and also doing entitlement and owner's representation. That's backed by almost 10 years of work in architecture firms across the country, from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles. My knowledge of software runs deep and I'm also a LEED certified professional.
My thoughts on being a designer:
"It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great." -Tom Hanks
Every project is unique, and creates a colorful realm of enjoyable work.
No monotony. :)"
