I have graduated from the M.S.AAD program of Columbia GSAPP this May and I have attained the LEED GA and LEED AP BD+C credentials. I can start working immediately and  I am eligible for three years of OPT extension to work in the United States. 

I graduated from Zhejiang University in China with B.Arch in 2017 and have had four internships during my undergraduate, for I would like to try different building types in the professional area. In 2016, I worked part-time for GOA in Hangzhou as an intern architect during the spring semester. At that time, I mainly worked on 3d modeling and plan drawings for large cultural and residential projects. During the summer vacation of 2016, I worked for Teamminus in Beijing and The Architectural Design and Research Institute of HIT in Harbin as an architectural intern one after the other. I mainly focused on the design part of a library renovation program in Teamminus while creating photoshop of renderings and diagrams for the second one. During the internships, I began to connect with project managers, got familiar with the process of architecture design, and managed the deadline for work.
Through these and other projects detailed in my portfolio, I am experienced with building materials and systems on complex projects. And during the GSAPP work, I mainly did projects correlated with urban design in a larger scale. I have extensive experience with design and management software including AutoCAD, Vray, Rhino, Microsoft suite and Adobe Creative Suite. And I have basic skills in Revit and 3ds Max, but I am a quick learner and will make it proficient as soon as possible. For physical models, I am good at working with 3d printing, CNC, sculpting and laser cutting.
I have great enthusiasm for architecture design and I am a self-motivated and conscientious worker. I really appreciate your consideration and look forward to further discussing the opportunity with you.
