About 

I believe diverse experience generates rich design with the potential to touch diverse individuals. I spent my childhood in Asia and later moved to the United States and studied art and architecture at the top design school in the United States. While studying there, I competed with the best design students from all over the world through critiques and open conversations. After graduating, I have gained invaluable work experiences in the United States, Australia, and Japan.


I have also shown my dedication, close attention to details and team-working skills on the many responsibilities I have tackled through my previous jobs. I dedicated myself to building up a strong skill set in software programs like AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Revit, 3DsMax, Rhino, Adobe Creative Suite, and Sketchup, as well as artistic skills like model-making, hand-drafting, and free-hand drawing skills. And I’m still eager to learn more. I have worked with two international competitions and many other international sites in various scales and types using my design, technical, and language skills.
