About 

I graduated from University of Florida in 2012, with a master’s degree in Architecture Design. I love this field, because it is a concentration of the world’s most beauty and elegance. 
I am design-oriented with strong technical skills. I am familiar with the whole design process from schematic design to construction, proficient in graphic software (Adobe suit/ InDesign/ Illustrator), 2D/3D modeling software (AutoCAD/ Revit2012/ Rhino4.0/ SketchUp) and physical model making. I am creative, highly motivated and hard-working. I am a good team work player with excellent communication skills.
I am originally from China. Ancient Chinese aesthetics and philosophy influence me very much in my design. I try to reveal/show the PERSONALITY of each project in my works with architectural language. Confucianism says ‘Tian Ren He Yi’ which means THE HARMONY BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HUMAN. A good building needs to show the harmony between human and its environment. It should be the bridge between them. In my design, my focus is to reveal the personality of each project on the basis of expressing the harmony. The combination of my eastern cultural background and western education background benefits me with a more flexible thinking in design.
I have five years’ working experience in cooperating with architectural institutes/firms in China, four months’ intern experience in architectural institute, two years’ as a drafter in architectural firm in FL. I learnt a lot from these working opportunities, including individual professional skills and team work skills. My working experience in China may be helpful if you do projects in China.

With proved organization, professional skills and passion, I wish I can have the opportunity to work in an excellent team and contribute to it.
