About 

A passionate and detail-oriented designer with 2 years of solid experience. During my last job as Architectural Designer in a small and fast-paced office at Creative Design Associates (Los Angeles, US), I assisted the project architect with all aspects of multiple Residential and Mixed-used projects from concept throughout completion. As a designer, Meeting client expectations are my priority, so I took clear notes at client meetings, cooperated with Project Architects to make every single idea come true. My job achievements also included drafting accurate plans & elevations, making handsome models, renderings and impressive architecture animated films for presentation, analyzing city requirements, ensuring code (e.g., CBC, CRC, and ADA standards) compliance, and navigating permitting process.

In addition to traditional architectural design processes, with a Master's Degree from an accredited architecture program at A.UD, UCLA, I am also specialized in the area between architecture, virtual reality & computational design. During my working in Shanghai, China, I was in participation with Shanghai Metropolitan Program and built City Landmark models in the VR environment, I also cooperated with MAD Architects to put forward computational design schemes for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art (under construction) in Los Angeles.
