About 

My most recent employer was MRY Architects. My resume explains my qualifications in detail. My professional background includes excellent academic credentials and more than seventeen years of experience in all stages of architectural design and construction. My recent eight years of experience in the architectural industry have been largely involved with healthcare projects in Southern California, Nevada, and Abu Dhabi, as well as some projects in public transportation, school facilities, and master development planning of cities in China. Having been a project architect and coordinator, I have come to excel in coordinating with all disciplines, and I specialize in putting together construction documents and communicating effectively with building department officials through plan check review process and pull out building permits. I also played a major role in the construction administration phase, coordinating with general contractors and clients. I am proficient in REVIT, AutoCAD, and other computer software programs pertaining to building industry and management tools.

Some of my areas of specialization:

• Building Envelope Specialist
• Document coordination with all disciplines and general contractors
• Construction document production and technical support
• Managing the process of working with building agencies for plan check review and permit
• Master planning and building design
• Construction document production and technical support
