  • Collaborated with 4-person project team on a 257,840 SF commercial project in DD phase, created digital modelling iterations of customized furniture and generated more than 50 presentation renderings with Enscape.

Teaching assistant at the University of Southern California

Los Angeles, CA; 05-08/ 2020

Architectural intern at JTD Architects

Topanga, CA; 05-08/ 2019

  • Incorporated fire marshal’s notes for single family residential project sited on 4 divided lots totaling 61,007 SF in SD phase, working directly under the project architect . I pushed the project forward and refined the overall design, taking the project into DD phase within a month.

  • Worked through SD phase on a 3,668 SF private residential project sited on uneven bedrocks and waterlines; supervised under project architect and attended the bi-weekly client meetings. I did code researching, translated point cloud raw data to Revit topography and analysed the limitations imposed upon the project by the site condition. I closely monitored core issues including project height that the design iterations had been causing and optimized the design.

  • Took over a 23,652 SF private residential project sited on a steep hill, worked through modelling the DD phase and re-dimensioned the design. I had the height limits under close observation and continuously recalculated and monitored the project FAR with every design iteration, ensured the design to progress under building code.

  • Built physical model iterations for a 35,670 SF private residence under the project architect’s direct supervision during DD phase, sped up the modelling process for the project deadline and ensured the quality of the model to meet the requirements of a meeting with the landscape consultants.

  • Worked on CD phase on a 3,142 SF single family residence with a senior colleague. Millwork on bathrooms, hardware, door & window scheduling, sped up the completion of CD phase on the project.
