Being a recent graduate in Bachelor's of Architecture at Rhode Island School of Design, I have developed variety of skills that will help me pursue my career as an architect.  At the moment, I'm seeking an opportunity for my cross cultural design sensibilities to grow within a collaborative working environment.  As in search for new conditions and settings, I'd like to find a company that is very exploratory in the work they do.
