I have 15 years experience as an architect-designer in retail and hospitality.  My experience includes:

  • schematic design
  • design development
  • interior design
  • construction documents
  • DOB documents
  • millwork/custom furniture drawings
  • shop drawings
  • fixture & furniture design
  • 3D rendering
  • freehand sketch
  • construction supervision
  • model making
  • graphic design

I am highly organized, a multi-tasker, have a passion for creative design, and enjoy being involved in the entire design process.

Currently, I'm working on the Zuma restaurant NYC project as a project manager. I'm in charge of producing the all of architecture documents, including the DOB sets, the construction set, and communicating with the client and all other consultants.

During my employment at JansonGoldstein LLP in New York, I was in charge of the "Los Angeles Hyatt-Andaz Hotel/Restaurant " and "Daniel Boulud Restaurant" projects (where I completed single-handedly the entire CD-set, millwork, and furniture drawings).  In Japan and China, I was involved in all phases of design (concept, budgeting, construction documents, site-supervision, etc) for some of the largest clothing retailers in Asia.

My software expertise is Vectorworks and Photoshop, and I have a working knowledge of Auto Cad. I live in Manhattan, am a greencard holder/permanent resident, and fluent in Japanese and English.
