Hi there! Glad to see you here! I am an architectural designer, seasonal web designer, active thinker, and an optimist.

In 2014, I moved from Beijing to Eugene, and began my master’s study in the school of architecture and allied arts at University of Oregon. My research topic was 3D web application based on Building Information Model (BIM). For my graduate research project, I developed a web application to demonstrate the web-based BIM. Please take a look at the project at

After graduation from University of Oregon, I moved to the the Bay Area. I worked as an architectural designer for one year while exploring California. Before moving back to China, I did a solo travel and explored major cities and natural wonders around US.

Prior studying at University of Oregon, I practiced architectural design for four years in Beijing. I was a leading designer in an international design team which had developed award-winning projects in China.

In Spring, 2017, I moved back to China after studying and working for three years in United States. Currently I am living in Shanghai trying to start my new career while navigating through this magical mega-city.

Some things I am passionate about: design, modular housing, data visualization, AR in the built environment, photography, deep house music, and craft beer.

Connect with me on LinkedIn and feel free to shoot me an email.
