About 

I graduated this May(2015) from University of Southern California with the dual degree of Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Planning and I am a LEED Green associate.

I've got plenty of working experience while interning in multiple architecture firms during my graduate and undergraduate school time and I am very familiar with my work.During my graduate time in USC, I worked 6 months as an intern in RTKL in Los Angeles(October 21st, 2014 - April 23rd, 2015). Before this, I interned in Gensler in Los Angeles for 2 months during my summer vacation(June 15th, 2014 - August 10th, 2014). I also interned in Aedas in Beijing(September, 2011-April, 2012) during my last two semesters of my undergraduate time and other two firms before. 

My internship experiences in multiple firms practice me to be a good team player by working with diverse people, be adaptive in new working environment under new office culture in the shortest time as well as be fully prepared for my work after i graduate.
