Introduction

At present, I am currently in my second year of Architecture at the University of Technology, Sydney. I am a young, dedicated, hardworking and motivated person who endeavors to show a responsible and professional attitude at all times. Following the completion of my HSC in 2007, I briefly joined the team of Cox Richardson Architects as a student assistant. The experience stressed the importance of fast learning and express problem-solving, things which I pride myself on having the talent to achieve. Since then, I have grown in my design abilities and can use a number of design computer programs with ease. I have been actively involved with the theatre for a number of years, performing in plays and musicals, and am now working at Capitol Theatre and the Sydney Lyric, as an Usher. Working in these environments has allowed me to encounter people from many walks of life, making my communication skills exceptional. The role has also allowed me to gain experience in training and managing of other employees. I also have previous experience as a receptionist and donations officer for The Chris O'Brien Lifehouse, as well as retail floor experience for womenswear from when I was second in charge at Review.
