About 

Hello!

I am an ambitious architectural designer in Los Angeles, with 1.5 years of work experience in residential projects.

I am inspired and amazed by everyday designs, no matter how big or small it is. As a Hong Kong native, I am deeply interested in urban design. In my spare time, I love making hands-on smaller scale design for children's books.
