Living in China, Japan and U.S. has given me unique insight into the diversity of other cultures. This insight has allowed me develop my communication skills in a way that facilitates team building. While living in China, I exceled at traditional hand drawing and physical modeling to articulate design intent. I have since updated my abilities with software like Rhino, Maya, Revit, AutoCAD,ect, helping to round out my education.
