"Achievement in life is only limited by imagination."

A driven dreamer, I persistently work on learning new knowledge to help turn my vision and designs into realities. I constantly look into the future with a global perspective built on top of my diverse education and social background and question how can art and technology improve the way we live in the 21st century.

An aspiring student studying Finance and Architecture Design at Washington University in St. Louis, I enjoy working out in the gym and visiting art museums outside of class.

Actively looking to learn and to serve at an architecture or real estate related business.
