Hello. My name is Serena Li, and I am a designer based out of New York City.

I recently graduated with architecture and urban planning graduate degrees from Columbia, but my design and development interests expand beyond those of the built environment. In addition to architectural work, I enjoy drawing in traditional media and digital tablets, photography, and graphic design and web development.

I was born in California’s Bay Area, and have resided in California, Oregon, Washington, and China. I received my B.A. in architectural studies from the University of Washington in Seattle, and worked in firms in Seattle until moving to New York for graduate school.

I am interested in cities and their development, especially in industrializing nations. My focus is on creating healthy, sociable, and sustainable environments for humans to live and work.

My personal interests include bicycling, violin, piano, and learning languages.
