I am an architectural designer who has 4+ yrs of professional experience in Seoul, Tokyo, Philadelphia, and New York. Detail-oriented and flexible in going back and forth between physical media and digital tools including BIM softwares smoothly. 

Understanding the result of the architecture comes out of interaction among a variety of entities, architect or architectural designer, for me, is one who has the knowledge and experience of making a good environment that gives people a sense of inclusion, and a feeling of joyful protection.
