Having my background from Visual Art transferring to Interior Design has a great impact on me. My study at Parsons encourages my conceptual and critical thinking which pushes me to think outside of the box. I am especially interested in how the design of the space can change the way people experience a space. Through projects individually or in groups, Parsons helps me to better cooperate in a team environment and adapt to various working cultures. I find myself adaptable and spontaneous yet can work efficiently and express my own ideas with diverse presentation skills.

During my previous four years of working experience as an interior project manager, my major responsibilities include but are not limited to site survey, architectural drawing and documentation, spatial planning, concept and material board, FF&E, and liaison with various parties namely the client, regulation authorities, vendors, builders, and engineers from scratch to build. While I was in this position, I demonstrated my ability in attention to details, organization, multitasking and prioritizing, as well as professional skills in drawing, problem solving, communications and design within constraints.

As a project designer, I manage everything in the space, from hand drawing, CAD drawing, 3D rendering to construction site management. I was responsible for mostly residential projects, so I understood the needs of the client in different area in their home.
