Victoria Phillips

Summary

I have recently graduated cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelor of Design in Architecture with a minor in Writing.  I want to practice in a creative field that draws from interactive, visual, and structural frameworks.  I have training and experience rendering drawings using computer software, utilizing traditional drafting techniques, and using watercolors and oils.  I also have experience creating scale models from a variety of materials.   For extracurricular activities, I volunteer weekly at the House Rabbit Society, compete in Kendo Club, and work as an illustrator and designer on independent game projects.
