About 

I am a college graduate with a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a master of arts degree in interior architecture. Although my background is in architecture, my main interest is working in interior design, especially adaptive reuse projects. During graduate school at RISD, I have had the opportunity to focus on adaptive reuse and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of sustainability in architecture where adaptive reuse plays an important role. Before applying to graduate school, I had a 3 month internship at a small scale residential firm in Jakarta, and post-graduation, I have worked for a high-end residential firm in New York and a small commercial firm in Brooklyn, which focuses mainly on F&B projects. During my time working for them, I’ve experienced the various stages of each project, from design development to producing construction drawings and sourcing FF&E.

Throughout my studies & work experience, I have learned and used various softwares such as AutoCad, Sketchup, Vray for Sketchup, Archicad, Vectorworks, Rhino, and Grasshopper. Other softwares that I use which are mainly for renderings and layout design are Adobe Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator. I am very organized, I pay attention to small details, and I hope I can be a great asset to your firm.
