26 April 2010 With regard to open architectural positions in the Los Angeles area, I enclose my resumé for review by firms who are interested in potential recruitment or strategic hiring of architectural professionals.

Over a nearly ten-year career, I have developed significant strength and experience in large- and mid-scale educational, corporate, commercial and institutional project types in multiple markets: • Significant experience in master planning, programming and feasibility study development • Significant experience in building design, document and team management from preliminary design to construction administration • Fluency in Revit and BIM coordination to manage internal and consultant teams and deliver project documents from conceptual design to construction • Full capability within design and full-service environments • Leadership capabilities of external project consultant teams • Significant experience in renovation and expansion project scopes as well as new construction • Strength in complex building systems coordination • Solid technical experience in the application and implication of building and energy codes on project design • Involvement in marketing and business development activities • Experience in contract development and review • Confident performance in high-level presentation environments I seek relocation to the Los Angeles area to extend my career in a collaborative and high-achieving organization with experience in broad project types and presence in multiple markets. I believe transition to such an organization may be mutually beneficial should my experience appear a suitable fit and demonstrate potential contribution. Thank you for your consideration. I would remain interested in opportunities within area firms as they develop, and can be reached as indicated below.

Best regards,
