Welcome, I'm Erica Tu. Professional Interior Designer and Freelancer. 2+ Years of Experiences.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Arts from Marymount University (Arlington, Virginia), Associate Degree from Montgomery Collge (Rockville, Maryland) and Associate Degree from Lasalle College of the Arts(Singapore) with a focus on interior designing.
During my studies, I received honors in interior designing and a merit award for my senior project plus a scholarship from Washington Workplace Scholarship. Plus, I was one of ten finalists in Creative Youth Exchange Competition (sponsored by Gallery Hotel) which was held in Singapore. And I have become the hotel ambassador of Gallery Hotel after the competition in 2006.
I am highly organized, hard-working and have extensive knowledge on interior design. In order to keep my tools sharpened, I constantly work on my craft while staying self-motivated to push my skills to the next level. I am extremely eager to put my talents to great use.
My specialties for design includes residential and commercial. I am professionally crafted in AutoCAD/ReVit and skilled in 20-20, Sketchup, Photoshop, InDesign and hand-rendering. I am also proficient in Microsoft Office and internet research. Moreover, I always pick up new skill or software quickly. I believe in putting everything I know to it full uses.
