I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Art & Engineering in architecture from the University of Liverpool, UK, and continued my education at UCLA for my Master's degree, where I was taught by Natasha Sandmeier and Nathan Su in the Entertainment Studio.

I am proficient in a range of modeling tools such as Revit, CAD, Rhino, and Sketchup, as well as rendering tools including Enscape, Lumion, and Octane, and diagramming tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator. 

My latest work experience focuses on Permanent Supportive Housing, retail, and school design, and I have also gained knowledge of coding, sustainability, client communication skills, and BIM. My academic projects include residential buildings, community centers, and offices. The experience of studying and working in different countries has made me an open-minded and highly collaborative individual, and I am always exploring new technologies such as game engines to experiment with more options for clients and architecture interactions. 

With several years of academic learning and professional experience, I am confident that my multitasking ability, cheerful disposition, and interpersonal skills make me a strong candidate for any position.
