I am seeking a creative team environment where my Design, Detailing, Technology and Customer Service skills can be utilized to enhance the capabilities of the team in order to provide superior service and projects that contribute in a meaningful way to the built environment.

As the Project Architect and the Project Designer, I managed 2 large projects from Concept through Construction concurrently. One is a complicated Tenant Improvement for the State of Oregon Department of Administrative Services involving multiple agencies in an occupied building and tight time lines (approximately 100,000 sf). The
other is a Design Build project for the Oregon Military Department for a renovation of their Readiness Center in Medford, Oregon while the building is occupied and hosting public rental events (approximately 45,000 sf).
I was asked personally by the State of Oregon, Department of Administrative Services to assist them in the design of several office Tenant Improvements for state agencies that will help set the standards for design and space allocations for personnel.
Successfully completed a new 15, 000 sf Administration Building for the Kennewick Irrigation District in Kennewick, Washington. This project had a tight timeline of 10 months from signing of the contract to move in. This was a new facility and needed to be held to tight timelines and budgets.
I have also done the following the tasks:
Bringing facilities up to Code, Aesthetic upgrades and SEED Compliance to (2) Oregon Military Department Readiness Centers. These were upgraded for seismic, Energy, OSSC, and also were designed to be Net Zero Ready.
Working with the Department of Administration Services (DAS) on multiple Tenant Improvements. Some in in the
range of $5 million while others are under $10,000.
Assisting DAS in setting their space standards for employees as well as upgrade the aesthetics of their aging
Numerous small, code compliance projects for Property Management companies,
Presentation Graphics for numerous projects
Direct involvement in all aspects of project delivery.
As a Project Manager, I facilitated work between the firm's Lead Designer and Production. I would create redlines from sketches, them delegate work for 2-4 employees at a time in order to meet project deadlines.
As a Senior Project Designer, I assisted in the creation of project visualizations to be used in the creation of Marketing responses, funding presentations, and for Client clarification of design intent for various projects. I also contributed to the Design of major building elements for large Renovation Projects for Higher Education Projects for various universities in New Mexico.
During one segment of time there, I was designing, managing, and producing documents for two large projects. One a Regional Government Office Building, and the other, a large Corporate Headquarter Building. At one point, I was managing 2-8 people and providing work to the team in order to meet deadlines. This was in addition to a couple of small Tenant Improvements that came up during that time.
Another main role at BBT, was that of creating digital imagery to be used as marketing material, Client Verification, City Permitting Processes, and imagery for in house staff on their projects.
As part of the Designer Role, I would initiate the design of projects that would ultimately be developed by other architects within the firm.
One particular success was the design of Centennial Park in Redmond, Oregon. This project was done in conjunction with Walker Macy, out of Portland, Oregon and involved the re-use of downtown city block that was to be converted into a new Civic Plaza. The Project involved numerous Community Meetings to gain the Community’s opinion and guidance on the design for the Plaza. In the end, the Plaza has been a huge success for the City of Redmond. This project was the stimulus for the City to help invigorate the downtown core with people and spur the redevelopment of the downtown area.
