In my current role as a Designer, I am highly efficient, well organized and always positive in each kind of work in a team. Not only did I put my passion in design work, but also get myself involved in construction details, to better assist the future design work in a rational way. Besides, I am also an effective team member with people in different work flows, software preferences and cultural backgrounds.
