A professional, forward-thinking, and intuitive designer with 5 years of industry experience who has keen attention to detail and passion for problem-solving.  My unique experience of having worked in the field before attending SCI-Arc gave me the discipline of incorporating construction logic and design theory in parallel, never one without the other, which creates space for innovation and invention while staying grounded by real-life conditions. My professional interpersonal skills allows me to handle, coordinate, and organize projects smoothly in a team environment.
