About 

In June 2016 I graduated from Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, UK, majoring in BA Architecture, where I obtained my RIBA Part 1 certificate. During my studies there, I found I have a passion for the robust and sustainable architecture. 

This led me to travel across the world to Beijing, China, where I worked for MAD Architects, exploring the boundaries of the 21st century organic architecture. That experience only increased my desire and strive to pursue a higher education in the field and become a full-fledged member of the architects' community.

For the past 3 years I have been working on completing UCLA's MArch program. And recently, I  graduated obtaining my first professional degree in Architecture. During my time as a student in the US, I gained experience working for firms like Perkins+Will and Kevin Daly Architects. I had the opportunity to be involved with different sized projects and to experience the dynamics of each stage a project goes through from SD through CD. 

Through my experience and vast exposure to different cultures, I now find myself fascinated by the chance to experiment with the ever-changing nature of architecture. I strive to become a licensed architect whose aspiration is found not only in the attempt to break conventions through innovative design, but also through the integration of the human factor and a multi-disciplinary expertise.
