About 

I am a recent graduate student from Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan.

I have strong skills in design, 3d modelling, graphic and photography.

I am very interested the interaction between space and human beings. I also like to explore the integration of digital tools into the design process and how the technology can push the boundary of architecture. 

I am actively seeking for a full time employment, preferred city including but not limited to New York, Greater Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, etc.
