After graduation from M.Arch program I started working for a sub-contractor in Bay area, CA. As an only architect I had variety of duties. I had people who were working for me on the field. Besides that, I was the person in charge to communicate between shop and field regarding what is happening on the site. Also I was responsible for communication between architectural firms and our company. There I learned and practiced leadership and management and I realized that the differences between these two. I believe I will contribute to any firm with my leadership and management skill.

As part of my internship I have worked for EDA architects in SLC, UT. During my short internship I got a chance to hands on variety of projects from programing and master planning to all phases of architectural drawing as a solo intern with least amount of supervision which is an excellent skill for an intern to fit in faced paced environment. My background plus my computer skills together are my super power to keep up with work. Besides that, I am a multi-task person who may handle different responsibilities at the same time and still get the best result.

Last but not least, my research and writing skill is another key factor which distinguishes me from my other peers. Currently I am conducting a “Post Occupancy Evaluation” research which makes me responsible for different meetings and interviews to gather enough and valuable information. Also, my paper has been approved and I will present my research on an international conference in Chicago. I believe my research and writing skill is what any firm would seek these days.
