Want to be an Architect? Don’t know where to start?


On your way to becoming an Architect, but don’t know what to do next?


Working in Architecture, but have questions you are afraid to ask?


I’m here to help!


Here’s the deal. I didn’t spend my whole life¬†planning on becoming an architect. I didn’t know I wanted to be an architect until much later in life. When I did realize my goal, I felt it was too late. I didn’t graduate high school, I didn’t have any degrees and I never worked in architecture. But what I knew is that I was going to do whatever it took to become an architect. I learned the hard way that choosing the right school, getting the right job and taking the right tests is the only way to become a licensed architect. I have gone through all of this recently and if you want to do the same, follow along as we go through this journey together.
