Jeanie recently received her Master of Architecture degree at The University of Texas at Austin. Prior to her graduate study, she worked for seven years in an award-winning architecture firm in the Bay Area, Swatt | Miers Architects. As a Project Captain at the office, Jeanie managed projects from beginning to end—contributed during schematic design, produced construction documents, and oversaw project construction administration. Projects she led or participated in subsequently won significant awards. During her time at Swatt | Miers, she also designed two monographs that represented the firm’s work. Her latest book design project is the world-renowned historian Anthony Alofsin’s new book, Dream Home: What You Need to Know Before You Buy.
During her time at UT Austin, besides studying architecture, Jeanie contributed extensively to the University’s graphic and identify development. She was a graphic designer hired through the University’s Office of Sustainability, however her work was not limited to one department; various organizations in the University sought for her design contributions. Her work dotted campus and school publications.
Jeanie has a wide range of interest in the arts and design. While Architecture is her profession, she sees herself as a curious explorer and seeker of knowledge and wisdom—values in the beautiful and the ugly, the theoretical and the practical, the extraordinary and the mundane.
