About 

I am a Part 2 Architectural Assistant educated in the United Kingdom. I have been awarded with a BA (Hons) Architecture and also a BArch Diploma in Architecture from The University of Manchester in England. I am now working towards obtaining Part 3 to become a registered Architect.

I currently have four years of experience across a wide range of sectors such as residential, education, retail and high specification residential. In particular, I am interested in both high specification residential and sustainable master planning.

I am professional, self-motivated and work well in a team as well as an individual. In addition I have developed excellent communication skills through liasing with clients and consultants on a regular basis.
