To obtain a full-time position as an architectural designer and acquire experience in the field with the long term goal of becoming a licensed architect.
Richard Rogers once said, “My passion and great enjoyment for architecture and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we -architects- can affect the quality of people”. Like Rogers, I believe that what I design will affect the lives of people today and future generations.
“People are more important”, is another thought that has inspired me to be sensitive to the needs of the inhabitant in new surroundings. In my six years experience of commercial and institutional design, I have gained awareness on how people interact within a space. Designing architecture for public use has made me accountable to the senses of a person and how they will react and adapt to a setting.
I have a knowledge base of materials and design methods that are respectful of the environment. With the help of technology and sustainable design advances, I strive to motivate others to aspire to improve the lives of people by not just designing a place but rather a space that is comfortable in a dignified environment.
