About 

Creative, self-motivated, and energetic young Designer with 4+ years of experience in designing Architectural buildings, ranging from a small scale installation to large scale projects, developing the project documents from early design phases through construction. 

I have the ability to work independently and proactively, and I have excellent design and graphic presentation skills. In Addition, I have excellent verbal and written communication skills. 

Finally, I believe in the power of Architecture, research, and design to create a better shaped built environment through the creation of beautiful, functional architecture.
