Preface

My passion for portfolio development began a long time ago. First I used an art and architecture portfolio to transfer from a renowned architectural school in South America to the Theatre Design Program at New York University—no small accomplishment for someone who didn’t speak English! Second, I used the portfolio to get jobs as a designer, design assistant, and as a technician while I was in college. Every project offered a new opportunity to feature my skills in my showcase. Later, I used my portfolio to expand my career, get new jobs, get accepted into graduate school, and get a teaching position in higher education. Every goal I have set for career development has been dependent on my portfolio.
