My name is Manh Tran and I have been working at Yazdani Studio of Cannon-Design as designer since graduation from USC with an M.Arch degree in May2015.

My professional experience includes two high-rise projects in Dubai that required using Revit, Rhinoceros, Grasshopper and Dynamo on extremely fast and demanding timelines. I was also designer for a concept design project for an incubator laboratory at the University of Washington, in which various creative space planning strategies were studied to promote interdisciplinary collaboration.

The highly innovative and challenging environment at Yazdani Studio allowed me to develop not only an exploratory yet practical design thinking, but also a wide skill set of computational, BIM and presentation tools. In addition, my wood shop and metal shop skills trained during a furniture project at USC will be useful for fabrication-related works that you may have.

Your firm will benefit from a hardworking, enthusiast and attentive designer who constantly aspires to learn new things and tackle new challenges.
