About 

PROFILE 

Eager to learn and expand my knowledge of new methods and technologies.

My various explorations led me to believe that interdisciplinary study is essential to develop technical, yet aesthetic designs.

I have become a quick and versatile learner through my many experiences with unfamiliar tasks and looming deadlines!

I enjoy engaging and communicating with clients, consultants, and team members to build trusting relationships.
