I am a curious critical thinker, who always questions why. 

I am a problem solver, who is always intrigued by the process of problem solving.

I was, am and will always be a passionate designer, who is seeking a platform to thrive and to contribute.

In my current position at F+P, I am self-managing a portion of the project our office is working on. I have taken on a great number of challenging tasks, which require diverse sets of skills of problem solving. It ranges from preparing construction documents to 3D modeling, from answering RFIs and submittals to contributing design ideas, from working with colleagues internally to coordinating with the client and contractors. I have been actively involved in DD, CD, and CA phase, and working both independently as well as collaboratively within a project team. To even more advance my profession, I am currently on the path of pursuing Architect License.

Around 3 years and a half ago, I received Bachelor of Architecture from Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) undergraduate program with the honors of Best Thesis Award and Graduation with Distinction. During the years at SCI-Arc, I’ve developed excellent conceptual, graphic and design skills. Through working on a wide range of projects individually and collaboratively, I’ve learned how to be an independent designer and a team player.
