A well-rounded designer with innovative problem solving skills and a sharp eye for details. With my advanced proficiency in major CAD software systems, including AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino and Sketchup, I can design complex building models and drawings expeditiously. Moreover, with my 5+ years of experience in Adobe Creative Suite, I can communicate my design ideas with clear and concise graphic visualizations. Along with my solid design and graphic communication skills, I also bring in a wide range of professional experience from my 1+ years of internship.
