Hi, I’m Lina. I am a licensed Architect in D.C., a member of the AIA, and I am currently the principal of POIEMA Architecture in San Diego. At Poiema, we believe that each of our clients is a unique work of art, and our role as Architects is to reveal this via the built environment.
My education background is diverse. I have two degrees in Psychology and Business Administration from UC Berkeley, and my Masters in Architecture from New York City’s Parsons School of Design. At Parsons, my work was archived and published in The Container, the University’s Design Journal. In my past life, I was a product manager for YouTube and an operations manager for Google. At Google, I was a recipient of Google’s OC award for my work monetizing the YouTube platform.
In my spare time, I am an adjunct professor at the Architecture Department at Woodbury University where I joyfully teach undergraduate & graduate students Architecture.
