I am confident in critical thinking to not only improve myself but also support the growth of my team. I am also a fast learner and willing to learn new technology and software. In addition to the technological skills, I am also confident in freehand sketching, painting, and adept at physical modeling with different types of materials, freehand cutting, laser cutting, CNC milling and 3D printing.
