Pao's love for architecture started at a young age, crafting and detailing have always been activities she's enjoyed. Growing up, she always found herself playing with colors and paper, trying to design new things for fun. Her professional career started doing mechanical drawing for an engineering firm. She later developed her architectural career when she got the opportunity to design and construct a single-family-home in Arlington, Texas. That project gave her an outlet to innovate ideas and find creative solutions to problems. She was awarded the "Perspectivas FW 2019 Jury Award" by the LiA (Latinos in Architecture) and AIA Fort Worth for her studio project "The Philippine Embassy."
In her free time, Pao enjoys volunteering, spending time with family, crafting and traveling, where she loves learning about new cultures and food. Her weekends are often filled with road trips to nearby towns and creating new designs for her stationary collection.
