About 

+urban designer  +mapmaker  +budding architect  +occasional graphic designer  +erstwhile artist

My  journey in designing the built environment began when, as a six year old, I became fascinated with maps and immediately began designing my own cities, drawing maps, and eventually buildings, on paper. Since then, I have had the good fortune to use that same imaginative thinking as a professional architectural and urban designer.
