Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a recent graduate of the University of Michigan and I am
looking for work as an architectural designer. I have a Masters
degree in Urban Planning and a second Masters in Architecture. I
was born and raised in Michigan and just moved back to my home town
of Lake Orion after living in Ferndale and Ann Arbor. It is
definitely a change to be back in suburbia.
I grew up camping and fishing during the summer and going to Cedar
Point as much as possible. I love to read when I get the time,
which isn't that often. I enjoy going out on weekends, either
dancing or just having drinks with friends. I try to live a pretty
casual life but I always have a million projects going on. I am
definitely up for going to new places and having new
I like to work with my hands, be it refinishing furniture or
painting (rooms or art). There is also nothing better than the feel
of pencil on paper when it comes to drawing. I recently also
started sewing again and knitting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my second masters at the University of Michigan. I
finished my Masters of Urban Planning degree in December 2012 and
my Masters of Architecture in May.
I am not sure where I will end up now. I spent the last couple
months moving, helping out family and getting to know my nieces and
nephews better. I would like to work for a non-profit doing
community outreach and development. Maybe I will end up back in
Africa. Or I guess the more realistic idea of working for an
I like to travel but only have traveled to Africa and Europe for
school. I would love to travel the world if I get the chance.
Hopefully I can fulfill this dream sooner rather than later.

architecture projects, I tend to keep myself busy rearranging
things. Luckily I tend to put all that energy into architecture.

I tend to talk a lot. I don't really mean to, it just happens. I am
also a twin, so that is pretty noticeable when we are together.

I like to read basically everything except science fiction. I tend
to read historical based books with a bit of romance in them.
I have a short attention span so I don't go to the movies that
often but I love watching movies at home. I like romantic comedies
and drama, any movie with a complex plot and not a lot of gore. I
recently started watching Dr. Who.
I love to try new foods. I really liked african food when I was in
Senegal. I love mexican food and eat it whenever I get a chance.
I'm always willing to try new dishes, especially anything spicy.

I just finished my 2 masters and am not 100% sure if I want to use
them. Sometimes living in a tiny house off grid is appealing
especially if it means I don't have to enter corporate America.
