San Francisco, CA, US



I have a B.A. in Architecture and a Minor in Structural Engineering from UC Berkeley. I have worked in three different Architecture firms, an engineering firm, and as a freelance Architect in the past three years.
During my education and professional experience I have developed strong skills in architectural design and drawing(Autocad, Adobe Master Suite), and proficiency in 3D modeling(Revit and Rhino/Grasshopper, Sketchup) and computer rendering. My educational background and knowledge of structure and construction process became useful when I worked at the engineering firm as well as the Architecture firms. I have also worked on interior design and renovation projects where I have been involved in the process of design and execution.

I am self-motivated and highly organized on individual projects and have the experience of working in intense charrettes and design teams to develop projects of different types, levels, and scales. I have the ability to adapt myself to different work conditions and project types and have developed effective social skills through exposure to multiple client interactions.
