About 

        I am design minded, highly motivated and creative to work in a competitive and fast-paced environment where designers are required of problem solving ability to multi-scale-level projects. My coworkers often refer me as “a miracle worker” who is creative, motivated, and responsible.        

        I have graduated from Woodbury University with a Bachelor Degree in Architecture and received an honored ‘Dean Award’ for one of the top five thesis projects. Upon completion of my undergraduate degree, my professional experience has been interwoven with opportunities to work at several local architectural firms. I had experienced through multi-scale-level projects such as commercial and hospitality projects, interactive public art sculpture of various scales, budgets, time constraints, and environments. My experience working in the professional realm has had a profound effect on my development as a skilled designer.

        Whether they are as simple as as-built drawings or as complex as construction documents or 3D modeling/renderings, I believe I have the skills and experience necessary to serve as a designer. In addition, I excel at making physical prototype and 3D models. I am a quick learner and have advanced skills in AutoCAD, Adobe Creative Suite, 3D modeling in Rhino, Sketchup, 3Ds Max, and visualization/renderings processes with Vray plug-in. I am also knowledgeable in networking and hardware of Windows and Mac computer systems.

        My excellent skill of time managing to deadline fulfillment is unquestionable, which is reflected in my ability to work on multi projects at the previous firms. My ability to communicate effectively with other team members, to multi-task, and to maintain high self-motivation is essential to help me become a better designer. Given my knowledge, creativity, detailed oriented personality, problem solving skills, and positive attitude, I believe I have the qualifications and enthusiasm that you are looking for.

        My printed resume and work sample, which are available upon request, contain additional information on my expertise and skills. I am open to discuss about any opportunity and to provide further information on my candidacy if needed. I can be reached any time via my cell phone, which is 408.887.5059 or my email at dckhoa115@me.com

        Thank you for your time and consideration.

        Sincerely yours,
