I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and managed to travel and live in San Francisco my favorite city so far and in between i lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Melbourne, Australia and Singapore. I've learnt to adapt well to new environments and i love meeting new people. I have the thirst for knowledge in anything innovative and i strive to take on new challenges. I like to bring an energetic attitude with an appropriate amount of humor to the workplace.
i believe my professional experience in Commercial and residential architecture in various countries would benefit your company to expand and communicate globally. I have dealt with sub consultants and clients here in Indonesia being a director of a small firm.
Revit modelling, Drafting and Rendering is my level of expertise as i've had a love hate relationship with the program since 2007. My inevitable passion lies in Music which i constantly relate to my Design process. I try not to set boundaries when it comes to design process as long as its relevant to its context.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information.
Thank you for your time

Academy Of Art University, San Francisco, CA, US, MArch, Master of Architecture
This school might not have the best name yet but i was privileged to work with some great professors especially my thesis adviser Alberto Bertoli who has a wide knowledge in various building typologies and educational institutions. The ability to experiment in design process has taught me how to slowly and honestly use the materials researched and refine it into and effective outcome in the production of massing and space planning. The diversity and the open planning of the studios has created an environment with a non stop production of ideas and innovation from various minds.
Deakin University, Geelong, AU, Bachelors, Bachelor of Design in Architecture
Australia has a leading technology in production of sustainable buildings, companies such as ARM designs self sustainable building all over the city of Melbourne. In this institution I learned how these buildings were designed and function with an on site perspective through inspection in field study and course work. Various professors from this school taught us how to design a self sustainable building using not only technology but the site and climate to the advantage for the building. Heating and cooling calculations were taught to formulate comfort levels in a dwelling and the Psychometric charts.
Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT), Melbourne, AU, Diploma in Building Design and Technology
This was a trade school which had an accelerated program that squeezed a three program into two. Intense working drawing classes and construction drawings were carried out two times a week to master the manual drafting methods and also the introduction to AutoCAD and Revit. The most valuable insight i remembered during my time here was documenting an existing construction site for a month with full access to take pictures and witness from drawings to construction.
