Joker has a B.S. in Architecture and works full time as an architectural designer. He is still on his open-ended sabbatical from finishing his Master’s Degree, and still has little desire to pursue taking the AREs. Joker has worked in several firms since the start of his career, and has always been underpaid. He lives at an undisclosed location with his family.
Maverick is a Registered Architect with a Master of Architecture degree. Maverick has been working for small architectural firms for his entire career. Maverick is now a member of the AIA (at his firm’s expense, of course), and is still trying to figure out what difference it makes. In the little spare time he has, Maverick enjoys reading and sketching–mostly subjects that don’t include architecture.
