I have extensive national and international experience in design, leading and managing complex, large scale and globally recognized projects from conceptual to successful completion of construction.  My strengths are my accomplishments in architecture and interior design sensibility as well as my technical knowledge in holistic integration of building systems, façade systems, vertical transportation, detailing, material selection and construction methods in the design, development and execution phases to ensure that the project is realized in accordance with the design intent. Since 2011, my professional practice has focused on large- scale projects in Asia from schematic design to completion of construction. 

 As Design Principal and Co-Principal-in-Charge of Jaeger Kahlen Partner, my recent accomplishments include leading and managing the design and construction administration of complex skyscraper projects such as the 1,010-feet tall Guangfa Securities Headquarters.  The multi-years long project encompassed 1,685,390 square feet of office workplace and was recognized by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat as the 18th tallest skyscraper completed in 2018.  As Principal-in-Charge of the tower work, I designed, led the development and construction administration of the technically complex façade systems and the interior design of the interior public spaces.
