I am a B.Arch graduate from Sothern California Institute of Architecture (2018) pursuing to become an architectural designer. During my years as a student at SCI-Arc, I've had couple of opportunities to work on short gigs under school instructors. Through these opportunities, my roles included, 3D physical modeling, 3D digital modeling in Rhino, and using Illustrator and Photoshop to create images. 

After graduating I have gained about 1 year and a half of experience as an architectural drafting assistant along side my father who works as a freelancer under Gus Duffy Architect located in Los Angeles, CA. My roles included, assisting in site visits, 2D drafting/3D modeling using AutoCAD or Revit, rendering using Revit or Vray in Rhino, and took part in assembling construction document. I have assisted on residential projects with ground-up, remodel, and addition projects.
