Perkins&Will, Designer

As a designer at Perkins+Will San Francisco, I learned to work collaboratively on small and large design teams for a wide variety of competitions and projects in different phases. I produced schematic SketchUp studies for the UC Berkley Haas School of Business Expansion and Retrofit. I developed Design Documentation and Construction Documentation skills in Revit for large, complex projects such as the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford and the Princess Noura University at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

l also led the Parklet Design Team, working to convert parking spaces in San Francisco into public parks for the community. Additionally, I created the Bike + Culture group and the Waste Management Initiative at the firm, creating graphics and coordinating efforts with colleagues and building authorities.
