Hello! I'm Joseph Picone Jr.


I am currently a Graduate Student pursuing my Masters of Architecture at the University of Hartford. In 2014, I received my Bachelors of Science in Architectural Engineering Technology at the University of Hartford.  During these studies, I have learned valuable skill sets that I am constantly improving upon.  In my graduate studies, I've learned how to work with in a large group to develop a complete construction document set for a net zero home.  I was able to hone my leadership skills and steer our group to success. During this time, I used my skills in time management, planning, and design to improve upon our already successful plan. 

Prior to attending the University of Hartford, I attended Capital Community College.  It was during this time that I discovered my ambition to pursue a career in architecture.  I’ve always been fascinated with how people interact with spaces.  While a student there, I took courses in architectural history, drafting, and building codes.  These courses helped build the foundation for my future in architecture.

Throughout my entire academic career, I have worked full time first as sales representative and now as an owner of a technology consulting group. 


These life lessons has taught me to have work hard to achieve my goals. I will face obstacles with self-confidence and strength of mind. I believe with my talents and knowledge; we can accomplish success.
