Intern Week: Matt Nguyen

Where do you go to school and what subject do you major in?

Wentworth Institute of Technology, Architecture

How did you first become interested in your field of study?

Since as far as I can remember. I was always interested in space/form. I love making spaces people use.

What’s your favorite food and why?

Favorite food, would have to say Korean BBQ.

Tell me about your favorite hobby.

Favorite hobby would have to be collecting things from figures to an assortment of weird pieces. 

How did you hear about Element and what was one thing that stood out to you about the company?

I first learned about Element through my school’s Career Fair. I remembering meeting Greg and Caleigh as they handed out free swag.

Lewis Clark Credit Union

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go, why, and who would you take with you?

I would travel to Spain because the weather is very nice and it’s rich with history/architecture. I would probably take my architecture friends.

Who are you interning under, what do they have you do, and out of all your responsibilities, which is your favorite/most interesting?

I was interning under Caleigh, but now it’s anyone who needs help. Mainly Jeff/Brian/Laura/Alina, on the architecture/interior side but I also help out with some graphics/renderings of spaces. Out of all my responsibility, I would have to say jumping back and forth between 3D modeling and 2D drafting.

Early phase exterior rendering

What is your favorite app and why?

I don’t have a favorite app unfortunately, but I do use snapchat/youtube a lot!


Special thank you to Matt!
