Jobs & Internships

Nevada Preservation Foundation

Summer 2014: Internship at the Nevada Preservation Foundation. 
Here, I helped to organize and sort through the Nevada Preservation Foundation's recent acquisition of the architect Hugh Taylor's archives. His designs can be seen throughout the Las Vegas Valley and are an important part of Las Vegas' history. I helped, through this project, to preserve and protect that unique history.

In the fall, I used the experience I gained as a part of my internship to design the Nevada Preservation Foundation's logo.
