For the past six years I have been involved in building design and renovation. I have worked in different architecture firms since 2009, which includes: Jan-present/2015 VON OEYEN Architects, June-Sep/2009 CCDI, June-July/2011 Ming Lun Zang Chuan Architecture, Feb-June/2012 Beijing CCI Architectural Design, and May-Aug/2014 XD Architects.Right now I am working for MVE & Partners in Irvine, California since July, 2015 as full-time junior designer.

My computer skills include extensive training and experience in Windows system, I am knowledgable in wide variety of 3D modeling programs including AutoCAD, Revit, Rhino (Grasshopper), Maya, 3DS MAX, SketchUp and also graphic softwares to support my designs such as Illustrator, In Design, Photoshop, After Effects. For renderings I always use Vray, Keyshot and sometimes Z-Brush. My studies, together with my experience, have taught me an important lesson - a good design is a good design, regardless of its application. Greater details of my accomplishments and what I have to offer can be found on my portfolio and resume.
