We enjoyed having Alex Freriks for several days this summer as a job shadow as part of a senior project. He was able to participate in a few client meetings, learn a little bit about the design process, and learn about Golden Section (actually, Alex, did you Google Golden Section like we encouraged you to do? – that was your only homework – we will have to follow-up on that).
Alex is a senior at Greenwood Community High School in Greenwood, IN. He has been a part of the Greenwood Marching Woodmen for 2 years since moving to Greenwood his sophomore year. Before then, he attended Lassiter High School in Marietta, GA and was a part of the Lassiter High School Marching Band. For the 2016 marching season, he will be one of the three Drum Majors for the band.
He enjoys listening to and playing music as well as enjoys sports such as baseball and football. He plays ten instruments and is proficient in 4 of them: Bass Clarinet, Trombone, Tuba, and Baritone. One of his hobbies is collecting playing cards. Academically, he lives for science, especially physics as well as mathematics. He is looking to attend Purdue University or the University of Illinois after graduating High School to major in Mechanical Engineering. Since we are architects, we encouraged Alex to go above and beyond the job shadow at HAUS by contacting some mechanical engineering firms for a job shadow.
Good luck, Alex!
