About 

A professional, forward-thinking, and intuitive designer who has incredible attention to detail and passion for problem-solving. Having experience in the field prior to attending an architecture program gave me the edge of incorporating construction logic and knowledge into my design projects at SCI-Arc. This unique position has made it an instinct for me to think construction logic and then design theory in parallel, never one without the other, which creates space for innovation and invention while still staying grounded by real-life conditions. My professional interpersonal skills allows me to handle, coordinate, and organize projects smoothly in a team environment.
