As a M.S.aad student from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation and with 5 years of architectural undergraduate study, I am confident that I have the education and ability necessary to be a successful and valuable addition to any architectural firm. 

With the experience in multiple types and sizes of firms and different phases of various projects, I’ve gained exposure to a comprehensive design process, including concept design, schematic design, zoning analysis and building code analysis, design development, construction administration, coordination with all types of departments, consultant, contractor, clients etc. The projects varies from schematic design of amphitheater,  residential building to historical preservation, interior design. As an integral part of a group, I collaborated with different teams. The experience of coordinating with multiple projects and colleagues gave me the adaptability to play a role in an organization and collaborate with others well. 

I also got proficient in multiple software including Revit, Rhino, AutoCAD, Adobe suite, Grasshopper etc. during my study and work experience, which makes me more professional and more eligible to be a valuable part of a company.
