ArchiTalks: Alternative Careers at SAIC

April 13, 2019


We kicked off the ArchiTalks series with a bang! The first installment took place at SAIC’s iconic Leroy Neiman Center. The panel discussion centered on alternative careers lead by panelists Brian K. Ellison - noted furniture designer, Amber Bloomfield - Sr. Project Manager at JLL, Kai Brown - Photographer, Sharon Samuels - set and scene designer, and Deon Lucas - Architect and Real Estate Developer. The discussion was moderated by Ameera Ashraf-O’Neil, who has over 20 years of experience in architecture and now works in construction management.

We were excited to have over 30 professionals and students in attendance.

A special thanks to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and students Lily Hernandez and Winee Lau for graciously hosting this event!
