About 

I have devoted all my effort toward understanding how to create powerful spaces capable of immersing and inspiring people. 

I am a recent graduate of the Southern California Institute of Architecture. During my studies there, I have acquired digital architecture design and visualization skills, including 3D modeling, parametric design, and animation. In addition, I have worked on multiple individual and group projects, and these assignments have allowed me to become a great team player and taught me how to function well in fast-paced and deadline-driven environments.

On top of my education, I worked as an Intern Architect at B plus U, LLP for three months from September to December 2020. There, I was responsible for producing 3D models of the building and creating the renderings and an animation to present to the client. The animation I created helped the team analyze the building's appearance from various viewpoints and develop the facade design of the multi-residential project. For example, after watching my animation, the project team changed the mullion color from black to silver because the black mullions were too strong for the building's appearance.
