New Orleans, LA, US



After graduating from the University of Southern California in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Architecture, I moved to Beijing, China where I worked as an architectural intern for WVA Architects. I spent my spare time in China doing freelance graphics and advertisement for the new and local Slow Boat Brewery and taking advantage of this opportunity to improve my Chinese speaking. I'm now back in the United States and getting to know my new city of New Orleans.
