I'm a recent graduate from Syracuse University, School of Architecture, actively looking for jobs in United States. Before I studied Architecture, I was in a medical school, major in pharmacy. However, I believe architecture is my route to incorporate my passion in logic, aesthetic, history and culture identity. During my five-year education,  I equipped myself with understanding of different culture by studying in Italy, Japan and New York City. At the meantime, I put my education in practice by internships in three different firms in architecture field.
