About 

As a master of architecture graduated from UCLA with an experience at the top firms SOM in Washington DC and CADG in China, I’m a highly motivated designer from culturally diverse backgrounds.

I am passionate exploring about the relationship between architecture and environment and like to find the potential of a project, combining different functions into one building. I am interested in using 3D modeling program and Adobe suites to present complicated designs in a simple way.
