I am a passionate and intelligent young designer with pre-professional architecture experience focused on 3D modeling and architectural rendering. During my senior year at Northeastern, I researched the correlation between urban and rural community organizational strategies in China before spending 4 months as an Intern Architect in Shanghai. I am interested in an entry-level position with an architecture firm and willing to relocate.
