Professional Profile:
Project Architect highly skilled in all phases of architecture and planning services and production. Architectural documentation and visualization expert. Highly experienced with Revit, AutoCAD (including programming interfaces and management), SketchUp, InDesign and rendering. Energetic and organized team player with ability to produce with professionalism, diplomacy and tact.

Professional Experience:
Jacobs Architectural Services, Inc. Architect, BIM Coordinator, Lake Oswego, Oregon, May 2011–Present

Current Projects:
Nano-Bio-Energy-Technologies Building Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 2011–Present Architect and cleanroom consultant for new 10,000 sf semiconductor research and teaching facility including tool support systems planning. Provided industrial interior design for the cleanroom and chemical and gas storage and dispensing rooms including hazardous occupancies planning. Systems coordinated include the cleanroom recirculation air system – ceiling plenum and recirculation units and gas distribution devices (house and specialty gas cabinets, panels, VMBs). Provided design support for the development of the shell and footprint during schematic design, and engineering basis of design, Design Development and detailed Construction Documents. Currently supporting bidding and value engineering and anticipate supporting services during construction. Project was collaboratively produced in all phases and by all disciplines with Revit and guided by AIA BIM Protocols and an LOD–authoring matrix.
Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey, 2011–Presently Under Construction Architect and cleanroom consultant for new 22,000 sf semiconductor material research and teaching facility. Coordinated with building design architect, architect of record and engineers in the design and construction of cleanroom classes 100 to 10,000 and tools ranging from table top equipment to E-beams and EUV Steppers. Activities included development of cleanroom concepts and air management systems, tool utility matrix development, draft HMMP preparation and development of approaches to address HPM delivery, storage and dispensing within the confines of a campus setting. Served as the third party reviewer of the Mechanical/Electrical/Process detailed design. I was introduced to the the project at a late stage to rebuild the Revit model and construction documentation to meet quality standards and time constraints.
Fab 20 Seismic Retrofit Intel, Ronler Acres, Hillsboro, Oregon 2012–Present Consultant for architectural scope surveys to enable structural brace-frame replacement. Coordinated with contractor to plan for quickest and least invasive methods for replacing existing lateral force resisting system to support retooled semiconductor facility.

LRS Architects, Inc. Architect, CAD Coordinator Portland, Oregon, August 2001–May 2011

As Job Captain and Project Manager, I learned and executed the following tasks for multiple simultaneous projects: Client Visioning, Programming, Schematic Design, Code Analysis, Design Development, Specification Writing, LEED Administration, Permitting, Construction Documentation, Construction Contract Administration.
As CAD Coordinator, I proposed and implemented a multi-year reorganization of drawing production Standard and Practice. Developed AutoLISP and VBA routines which streamlined CAD production and greatly increased drawing consistency and accuracy. This reorganization facilitated growth, profitability and resulted in greater project scales than previously possible. Conducted training in AutoCAD, SketchUp and Revit.

Dongxin Street Conceptual Master Plan Economic & Technological Development Zone Authority, Kunshan, China 2007
Designed and prepared master plan design options for a one-half square mile riverfront redevelopment site for the Central Business District in Kunshan, China. Goals of the plan which I defined and achieved include: Review of Chinese planning policies, programs, initiatives and regulations. Identification of local economic development opportunities capitalizing on existing industries and infrastructure, and promotion of a diverse, and sustainable mixed-use base to attract foreign investment and to support residential, commercial and industrial development. Promoted protection and enhancement of historically key canal systems; highlighted opportunities for renewable energy and nature related leisure activities. Applied sustainable planning principles such as minimizing automobile traffic exposure through promotion of bicycle and pedestrian avenues and minimizing commuting distances by promoting mixed-use development.

City Facilities Master Plan City of Tigard, Oregon Downtown Tigard, Oregon 2008
Directed by principal to collect and organize facilities survey data. Analyzed data, designed and produced Twenty Year Plan providing an assessment of existing City facilities,space needs, space programming, conceptual design and cost estimating.

Sustainable Campus:
Phase IV Campus, Zhangjiang High–Tech Park Shanghai, China, Completion 2011
Delivered programming and design development services for a major technology park totaling 2.28 million square feet. The phased campus for semiconductor research includes Office, Laboratory, Hotel and Convention buildings. Team included Interface Engineering, HDR, Inc. and a local design bureau, with all whom I worked closely in Portland and Shanghai to develop advanced sustainable systems for the project. Targeted to become the first LEED Platinum project in China, and the world's largest LEED project by area, the development will make use of advanced engineering strategies (ice storage and ground water loops) and integrated sustainable site design (central pond for storage and enthalpy).

Designed and prepared winning proposal for commission in competition with sustainability leaders from Germany and Japan.

Developed high–level eco–industrial development planning principles encompassing LEED ND infrastructure and land use policies. Identified and resolved differences in regulatory, cultural and practical design standards.

Semiconductor Research, Process and Support Facilities:
RP1, RU1, RS4, 5 & 6 Intel Ronler Acres, Hillsboro, Oregon 2004–2008
Under direction, designed and prepared deliverables and performed Construction Contract Administration for several semiconductor research and fabrication facilities. Received Intel training in design and operation of Cleanrooms. Conducted weekly design meetings with engineering consultants, process engineers and contractors.

Structured Parking:
Hillsboro Intermodal Transit Facility Skanska USA and City of Hillsboro Hillsboro, Oregon, Completion 2010
Under direction, developed design and produced Constructions Documents through permit process with Revit software for a LEED silver–targeted parking structure. Chaired client–contractor–consultant meetings during design phases.

Clackamas Town Center Parking Garage, Howard S. Wright Construction Clackamas, Oregon 2005
Contributed to the design and solely prepared all Schematic, Design and Construction documents for an 836–space, six–story, cast in place concrete, open parking garage at Clackamas Town Center.
