About 

     I am of the opinion that architecture can save the world. I am very passionate about dedicating myself to a lifetime of learning to express newer and greener building technologies that enhance our quality of life, by shaping the spaces that we inhabit. What motivates me to pursue a career in architecture is the sense of accomplishment and adventure that I experience each time I am immersed in a space that strives to be more than just a building. I am inspired by the connection and the sense of camaraderie I feel with the designers when I happen upon brilliant architecture and the excitement of a new project idea before it is fully realized. I know that there is little else in the world that would satisfy my desire to continue to learn and to grow as an individual and satiate my creative drive.
