I received my master degree in Architecture from Academy of Art University in San Francisco. It's a unique opportunity for me to chase my dream as an Architect. I was working as a Fashion Designer in China after I graduated from Xi’an Academy of Fine Arts majoring Fashion Design, but I am extremely enthusiastic about Architecture. I emphasize the expression of sustainability, natural material, assemblage of parts, light, shadow, technology, ecological, adaptability over time, , and appropriateness of space.

For the past four years, I have studied several correlative classes such as Design Process & 3D Media, Spatial Composition, Construction Documents and Building Codes, building detailing, and building structures. I'm familiar with REVIT as well as various other design and rendering programs including 3D Max, SketchUp, Bonzai 3D, Form Z, Auto CAD, and Desktop Publishing Programs including Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator.
