About 

Growing up, with my father being an architect, and my mother an interior designer, everything around me was always highly tasteful, delicately seductive. I was able to see my parents work together and experience a design team first hand at a young age. Together, they would create their own universe, and I sought to create my own journey that is never imagined possible.

I hold interest in a multitude of spectrum (learning new languages, culture, traveling, music production + instruments, modeling, poetry...) that led me onto the path I walk today. I lived in New York City and Taipei for an equal amount of time and it has helped me grasp and appreciate the beauty of different cultures, how this influences their designs, and most importantly, offered a broadened perspective and more creative insight on design and coordination.

Walking the path of architecture and design has enabled me to stand firm with experiences and knowledge in creativity, problem-solving, planning, presenting, teamwork, and the ability to satisfy a client both effectively and efficiently.
