I’m making the leap. I’ve never seen a cherry tree in bloom and I think it’s about time. Washington, D.C. is my sort of city. Although they were a little slow to catch up to us with a bike share program, the Metro can’t be matched. I’m now in my mid-twenties and it’s time to either stay or go; and I’ve always said that I would go. There seems like no better place to go than Washington. The cradle of civilization settled on the Mesopotomac. Or something like that, I’m still brushing up. Washington, D.C. is the number one city for recent college grads and the second most fit. In fact, D.C. and Minneapolis routinely trade spots back and forth at the top of the lists of everything good. And beside that, as the Magnetic Fields say, it’s where my baby waits for me. For all those reasons and more, I am officially in full D.C. job search mode.
Now for my pitch: I have a Master’s degree in Architecture and obviously have a strong interest in urbanism. I have been working at WCL Interiors for 6 months and was a Communications Intern at the State Capitol before that. At WCL I have learned an immense amount and have had a wonderful and dedicated mentor. In addition to our bread and butter – commercial interior change management – I have been very involved with two large historical warehouse renovation projects. Below is a picture I took today while surveying one of these projects:
Fun, huh? This is the second floor of a meandering conglomerate of warehouse buildings near the future Central Corridor Light Rail line in St. Paul. It’s my favorite sort of building and it is going to be amazing once we are done with it. Being involved in the kind of development that will revitalize historical districts of large cities is my architectural passion, and it is something that I would be more than thrilled to do in D.C.
So now, loyal readers, I ask for your help. If you or someone you know might be privy to an opportunity in D.C. or anywhere near it, I would love to hear from you. My resume can be viewed here to find out more about me. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
