Are you having trouble getting started or making progress on the Architect Exam?!?? Is the self-guided nature of the ARE not working for you?

Join our virtual study group. The ARE Boot Camp has a syllabus, a schedule with deadlines, people to study with and hold you accountable. The program is organized similar to a "design studio", to help you study for the Architect Exam.

We recently started accepting applications for sessions beginning in September and October 2017  for both ARE 4.0 and 5.0.  It's time to get started with making progress on the Architect Registration Exam. 

Here’s my photos.

All of these pictures came from my Instagram feed: YoungArchitxPDX Feel free to add me.

Today I chatted with The Great Joel Pominville for the Young Architect Podcast! We had a long conversation about keeping it real and being a badass! 😎💪🏻🤘🏻#whatanarchitectdoes #wehangoutwithradpeople #aianola #joelpominville #clemsonarchitecture #thefutureofarchitecture

We’re about to have a mock bid and my team is going to win! #csiportland #kracken

My team: On Time and Under Budget Construction didn’t win, but we weren’t far off. Ali is schooling us all about bidding! #csiportland

Once when no one was around… I climbed up to the base of that flagpole and drank a few beers up there with some friends. #whatanarchitectdoes

It’s all true!

My awesome friend Michael Riscica of @youngarchitxpdx is part of The Council of Visionary Business Builders. We’ve been to Nicaragua and Mexico together, we’ve drank more tequila and beer together than we probably should have, and we’ve contemplated the future of our businesses on trails of Forest Park with his dog Molls. And best of all, Michael knows how to wake up my alter ego, Frat Mike! Michael is a badass business builder in every sense of the word! I’m a little pissed he’s leaving Portland soon but happy that we’ll always be connected. Michael is exactly the kind of entrepreneur I want in my corner. If you’re tired of trying to DO IT ALL on your own, maybe it’s time to surround yourself with people who have your back and can make the journey smoother. The Council of Visionary Business Builders is enrolling now [See Link in Bio] #bizbuildercouncil #visonaryentrepreneur #thecouncil #playbigger #bebold #entrepreneurlife #community #connection #impact #purposedrivenbusiness #fratmike

Not every architecture organization or AIA engages with the younger people in the profession. The ones that do, certainly need to be acknowledged. Check out the master list I’ve started by visiting #whatanarchitectdoes #idesignbecause #thefutureofarchitecture #isntabunchofoldwhiteguys #whogiveeachotherawards #iamtheaia #myprofession

I know right! I’m getting rid of everything I own, except for the yellow dog, the roomba and my vitamix. Do you need a 10,000 btu air conditioner, some shitty IKEA furniture or a giant pile of architecture books I haven’t touched in 10 years? #fuckit #gettingridofeverything #whatanarchitectdoes #idesignbecause #idontneedthisshit #freedom

Molls, you been selling drugs?!??? #wtf #makinitrain #lablife

Abitare (an Italian architecture magazine) issue 394 from April 2000 on page 54 there is a GE Refrigerator advertisement with a 747 flying straight towards the twin towers. Just saying. #imonlyareporter #lookitup #gerefrigerator #fuckedup #whatanarchitectdoes #abitaremagazine #pre911
