About 

I am an aspiring designer and architect based in Los Angeles, California. I am a graduate with a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture in 2015. My work currently reflects projects done at SCI-Arc, some of which were featured in the annual Spring Show Exhibition in 2011, 2013, and finally in 2015 for my thesis titled "Plasticity: A Plastic Raumplan." My studio project for the Chicago Union Station, done in collaboration with a colleague, has been published in two online architectural magazines (links below). These projects range in scale from a full-scale installation to large-scale building proposals, which are represented through different mediums including photography, renderings, 3D modelling, hand-built and digitally fabricated physical models, line drawings and preliminary sketches.
