My name is Joseph Parlongo, I have recently completed the Architectural Technologist program at Sheridan College. I would like to thank you in advance for reading this biography page about myself.

I am 22 years old and I have attended school at Sheridan College for Architectural Technologist program. Throughout my years of studies I believe that I have come to learn a substantial amount to enter the work field and begin my career.

To better know me let us go back to where it all began, I was born in Montreal, Quebec from two very Italian families, where I had to learn quickly what it meant to be Italian.

What does it mean to me to be Italian?  Off the top of my head, to be Italian is to be sensual.  It is to intimately taste the wine, the sauce, and the ripe olives, as well as the color of the sky, the curve of the coast, and the fragrance of the air, the skill of the sculptor, and the eye and soul of the painter.  It is to feel the pain of humanity, the innocence of a child, the loyalty of a dog.  It means to take care of your family first but to help anyone in need when you can.  It means to drive a hard bargain.  It means to belong to a gene pool influenced by some of the most interesting cultures of history. Yes, I do speak English, French and Italian.

Figuring out who I was and what brings me joy in life is what has determined the type of person I would aspire to be. Architecture and design are just a couple of the few joys in my life.
