As a senior, I’ve come to terms that there are many options regarding the field of Architecture. In a city like New York, the opportunities vary and are very competitive. At this stage of my life I am more than familiar with what I exceed at and lack skills for, but I still perceive and remain optimistic. Luckily I’ve had experience under my father’s Millwork company through the years and learned a lot first hand how it works in the field compared to student work. Some of the lessons are communication, time management, strong work ethic, and optimism.
For my career I plan to remain in the city and gain experience through small firms that based themselves in construction management (contractors), interior design and renovations. I enjoy being on site working with other professionals and not only assure progress but gain knowledge in the process. Working on commercial related sites is more interesting to me than focusing on residential apartments and houses. My dream is to continuously meet others related to the field and work together to continue improving the New Yorker lifestyle, one or many locations at a time.
As a contractor/architect, not only I dream of being more than economically stable, but leading the way and setting the standard as a unique firm. In New York City, there’s constant projects happening daily regarding my field. The dream is realistic because of the significant need to change certain spaces while applying new aesthetics and following complex designs to improve people’s lifestyle.
