I stumbled on an link from the New York Times on Facebook called Architect, or Whatever and it really stuck home for me.
It was validation for me that I made the right decision in following my gut.
I don’t remember if I mentioned it before, but I did study architecture in college.
According to the article, these folks embarked on different careers due to the current state of affairs for architects.
As anyone can tell you that had been though an collegiate architecture program, that even though the materials may change, the skills do not go away.
An architect, or any creative professional for that matter can apply their experience to many careers, creative or not.
