EXPERIENCE

GENSLER

February 2019- Present

Being part of the Digital Design Team focuses on how new technology drives the next generation of design and delivery. My role is a unique intersection of design and technology. I had the privilege to implement, support and strategize with different teams on various aspects of projects. My main focus is looking at digital design workflows holistically in areas of Building Information Modelling, Design Visualization, Computational Design and Performance Design. I overtook several leadership roles on multiple projects for efficient project delivery. I also participated in office-wide production of tools that communicate with templates we are constantly updating. Also worked on 3D printing, PointCloud scanning, build parametric families and performing building analysis.
