With my inherent love for nature, creative and logical thinking, experience in teamwork and leadership, I am highly motivated to acquire landscaping projects caring about ecology, urban environment, and human experiential space. I have been studying playa threaten and sea level rise worldwide and tried to give possible solutions to pilots in my Capstone and studio projects.
