After working in China for three years, I am seeking to align myself with a firm that is poised for growth in domestic and international project expertise.  My excellent qualifications and continuing desire to excel in this industry make me uniquely qualified for this position.  Working abroad has sharpened my ability to adapt to a complex set of project requirements, while working extra hard to understand both the client’s goals and the company’s goals in a highly versatile working environment. 


Taking advantage of my professional experience across the world, I am seeking an opportunity where I can continue developing my broad range of skills as a designer and become a more integral part of the entire architectural process.  My goal is to find an opportunity where my skills with design software, international experience, and architectural acumen can benefit your company and my long-term growth. 

Here are a few of my outstanding qualifications:
Poignant design and problem solving skills with the ability to adapt to various working and design environments, as well as, shifting project priorities

Excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills, with the adaptability and experience to work with different cultural and language settings

High capacity to work cross computer platforms to design, create, produce in the latest versions of adobe suite, AutoCAD, Rhino, and SketchUp

Experience working in various countries on commercial, residential, civic, infrastructural projects that range from the scale of a small nightclub to a large scale masterplan

Superior ability to work concurrently on different projects with separate project schedules and a high performance standard with a demanding project schedule

Great desire to develop strong team relationships while continuing to develop my own skills by learning new systems and developing useful expertise

Thank you for your time and consideration
