About 

I am a working professional with a B.Architecture degree in University of Southern California.  I am coming in 5 years in this industry with few notable large multi-disciplinary firms. 

Professionally, I have worked for corporate firms such as HNTB, URS Corporation and AECOM.  With these offices, my roles have developed from Intern Designer up to Job Captain, and in some projects even Deputy Project Manager. Some of the key projects I have been part of are San Diego International Airport, Tesla Facility, Orange County Great Park Masterplan, and New Levi Football Stadium. Through these projects I have learned every aspect of the design field, from Preliminary Planning all the way to Construction Administration and Project Close Out. I have also learned to become an effective communicator and I am known to build lasting relationship with clients in all the projects I’ve been involved.

Working for some of the nation’s largest corporate firms have shown me different perspectives on understanding how business development works, the ins and outs of our industry and politics behind every decisions. My passion in architecture comes from hands-on work and physical environment - how to build what I've designed and drawn. I absolutely value high level of coordination and collaboration with other disciplines and expertise.
